With MC’s swim and dive season coming to a close, it’s time to dive into the end of their season.
The last varsity swim and dive meet was CIFs, which started on Wednesday, May 20, and continued through Friday.
Sophomore Lauren Kapp, a varsity swimmer, explains how MC’s swim and dive team made into CIFs. “The top 32 swimmers from each division are placed into the competition.”
“For dive it’s top 32 divers. It’s similar where you can only send four divers to CIFs,” varsity diver and sophomore Mikaela Weber said.
Due to hard work and dedication throughout the swim and dive season, swim was able to pull off a fantastic win with the help of dive.
“We won by about 40 points. Diving had a huge impact on us, too. They got us ahead by seven points going in against Cathedral Catholic, which is our biggest competition,” Kapp said.
MC’s divers also had a great meet, competing to the best of their abilities against the tough rivalry.
“We did pretty well. We got seventh, 11th, 13th, and 19th,” Weber said. “It was really fun because a couple of the divers came to swim CIFs to support everyone and it was really fun to be a part of that.”
With CIFs done and dusted, the swim and dive team gets to relax and cheer their teammates headed to state. “This is the second year of us winning CIFs consecutively,” Kapp said.
“We have worked so hard this entire season and for it to all pay off was amazing.”
The future for swim and dive looks bright as they continue to stay in shape for next year’s season. Swim hopes to maintain their status of swim CIF champions, and work together to have another great season.
