WAUKESHA – The Waukesha North Pool record board is being updated.
Freshman Ella Antoniewski set a Waukesha North pool record in the 100-yard butterfly to help Waukesha South-Mukwonago to a 133-35 win over Waukesha North/Kettle Moraine in a Classic 8 Conference Girls Swimming Dual Meet on Thursday . Antoniewski’s time of 1:03.21 beat the previous mark of 1:03.81 set by Arrowhead’s Emma Goral in 2007. Antoniewski also won the 100 breaststroke in 1:16.04, swimming against the winning 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams.
“Of course there is a technique that needs to be repaired, but I’m very happy with the times,” said Antoniewski. “I’m mainly looking for improvements. Location doesn’t really matter. Times and techniques are more important to me.”
“But now that I see my name up there, I’m very happy,” said Antoniewski.
North/Kettle Moraine coach Kyle Bedalov put Antoniewski’s performance in historical perspective.
“This school has been around since 1977, so it’s always cool when you can break a billiards record,” Bedalov said. “It’s in the Classic 8, so she’s recording an Arrowhead record. Think about it, 2007, she probably doesn’t even know who the girl is.”
“We only update it once a year, so we won’t update it until after the boys’ season, but it’s still pretty cool,” he said. “Maybe she’ll even be the next to break it in two years, but it’s definitely going to be around for a while.”
South/Mukwonago won all eight individual competitions and all three relays.
Junior Talia Nettesheim won the 200m freestyle in 2:18.27 and the 100m freestyle in 1:04.94; and second graders Keira Gardner won the 50 freestyle in 28.45 and the 400 freestyle in 4:52.49.
Newcomer Brodie Jones won the 200 medley in 2:38.14; and as a sophomore, Jasmine Hill won the 100 backstroke in 1:11.29. Nettesheim, Gardner, Ellie Wilber and Abbi Bartosz each swam in two winning relays. Hill and Audri Ditch each swam for a relay winner.
“The kids swam pretty well,” said South/Mukwonago coach Blaine Carlson. “We’re working on things in practice and this is just another opportunity to implement them in a race.”
Freshman Sara Wiedoff placed third in the 50 freestyle and 100 backstroke for Waukesha North/Kettle Moraine. Sophomore Adrienne Prymas was third in the 100 butterfly and Junior Sydney Leston third in 100 breaststroke.
Wiedoff, Prymas, Leston and Stella Delcore finished second in the 200 SC relay.
“Where we’ve been up to three weeks ago, it’s just a huge improvement,” said Bedalov. “If we can make that same jump from week three to week seven like we’re doing now and then in week 10 or week 11, then it’s going to be great… it’s us going in the right direction.”
South/Mukwonago also won the JV meeting, 116-27. Jerynn Mueller won two individual JV events for South/Mukwonago. Morgan Witkowski, Addy Bean, Addy Poetz, Maddy Leverence and Kelsey Heidt each won one.
Samantha Mainz posted a JV win for North-Kettle Moraine and Grace Singsheim and Miranda Ragen took second place.
