Girls Swimming and Diving Media Coverage
The Girls Swimming and Diving team appeared in an article in West Newsmagazine this week after their 2nd place finish at Class 1 State Championships. The article interviews Head Coach Kristen Witzman who shared, „We were extremely thrilled with our second-place finish as a team. That is our highest finish since I have been there (13 years) and only the third time we have gotten a team trophy since I have been there.“ Witzman, who gave birth to her first child during the season, kept in touch with Assistant Coach Chris McCrary and the girls as they worked their way to State.
The article highlights Abby Wickersham ’22, Anna Scott Baur ’22, Sophie Henriksen ’22, Alex Fox ’19 and Grace Lee ’19. Read about the two Class 1 State records set by the MICDS team, the recap of State and about the individual and relay accomplishments in West Newsmagazine here.
