The Little Hawks swam against the Trojan Bolts in a dual meet on Tuesday. The West High varsity swim team won 120-66 against City High, with West junior varsity winning 135-41. 

“It was a closer score than it has been [in past years],” Avery Wilson ‘20 said. “We were really loud, and I think we all had a lot of fun cheering everyone on.”

The teams competed at Mercer Park Aquatic Center, where the team of West and Liberty swimmers won against City High in the meet. City won three varsity events total: the 200 medley relay (Carly Weigel ‘20, Olivia Masterson ‘20, Trinity Sadecky ‘20, and Rika Yahashiri ‘21), the 500 freestyle (Sadecky) and the 100 breaststroke (Masterson).

“I had a lot of fun racing against West,” Sadecky said. “I know many of the swimmers on their team, so it was nice to see them. It was a good energy.”
