Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

Thirty-six Holyoke swimmers competed in Colby, Kan. Saturday, June 22, at the first swim meet in a meter pool this season.

The added length of the meter pool did not affect the performance of the Holyoke Swim Club, noted coach Brenda Krueger.

The team did well as two new records were set by Holyoke swimmers at Saturday’s meet.

Rylee Schneller snagged a first-place finish and a new record in the 9-10 girls’ 100 m individual medley event with a time of 1:45.05. Her time smashed the previous record of 1:49.12 set by Mollie Tate in 2011.

The 9-10 girls’ 100 m freestyle relay team, comprised of Haley Van Overbeke, Lauren Herman, Schneller and Kristin Vieselmeyer, finished the race in 1:16.65 to beat the 2012 record of 1:20.47 set by the Burlington Swim Club.

Holyoke’s combined team score for the day was 165, landing the club in fifth place. Goodland, Kan. secured first place with 311.5 points, followed by Colby 266, Oberlin, Kan., 177.5, Wray 171.5, Holyoke 165, Burlington 151, Oakley, Kan. 91 and Flagler 53.5.

Coach Adria Colver thought it was fun to watch the team’s enthusiasm at the Colby meet. Colver was also pleased with the effort demonstrated by six swimmers in the 200 m freestyle event.

She said Lali Marquez and Shianne Willmon in the 11-12 division, Emily Krogmeier, Tara Krueger and Regan Van Overbeke in the 13-14 division and Lori McWilliams in the 15-18 division, all had great freestyle races.

The next Northwest Kansas Swim League swim meet will be in Goodland, Kan. Saturday, June 29.
