Summit swim & dive downs Englewood
Throughout the winter, head coach Jenny Wischmeyer has talked about getting her Tiger swimming and diving team to peak at the right time. Well, if Tuesday’s any indication, it appears Summit is doing just that.Highlighted by a dominating performance in the 100-yard breaststroke, the Tigers toppled Jeffco League-foe Englewood 112-62 on the road.”It was a really exciting meet for them,” Wischmeyer said. “They swam really, really well.”Overall, the Tigers won eight events on the night, none more impressive than in the 100 breast, where the Tigers had three of the top-four finishers. Junior Sam Latta dropped 2 seconds off her personal-best time to notch her first-career event win. She finished in 1 minute and 35.6 seconds. In third was Kenzie Morgan, who dropped an astounding 8 seconds off her personal best to edge out teammate Monica Lopez-Morales, who finished fourth in her first attempt at the discipline.”It was great to see how well they all did,” Wischmeyer said of the talented trio.Senior Katie Lowe also had a big night for Summit, winning both the 200-yard freestyle and the 100-yard backstroke.Katy Andrews (50-yard freestyle), Amanda Moore (100-yard freestyle), and Olya Aden (500-yard freestyle) also took home individual titles. Aden’s 6:31.28 was a career best for the 500.The Tigers also won the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays and finished second in the 200-yard IM relay.In diving, Summit’s Gabi Ketzenbarger, Rachel Lawlis and Abby Akers went 2-3-4.The Tigers are now heading into the final stretch of the season with a meet at Dakota Ridge on Friday and the Jeffco League races next week.”So many of them have been swimming personal bests all year, and I’m really excited to see what they do when they rest more,” Wischmeyer said, noting her team will start to taper its workouts this week.Friday’s meet is slated for a 5 p.m. start.
