In one of the fastest 3A Districts, the Riverdale girls had some great swims, led by Senior Lizzy White and 3 Freshman (Shepherd, Reina and McLaughlin). Both 200 relays had best times and re-broke school records. Several girls are in good positions to potentially advance to Regionals. Freshman Emma Sekula snagged a 1st place finish in Diving.

The team finished 5th, but they had several fast relay, individual swims and dives:

  • 200 Medley Relay 2nd 1:56 (Gabby Shepherd, Lizzy White, Isabella Reina, Mikaila McLaughlin)
  • 200 Free Relay 2nd 1:45.6 (1st was 1:45.5 – Gabby Shepherd, Lizzy White, Isabella Reina, Mikaila McLaughlin) 
  • Lizzy White defended her 100 Breast title and was 2nd in the 100 Free (automatically qualifies for Regionals in both events)
  • Gabby Shepherd was 5th in the 100 Back
  • Isabella Reina Top 5 finishes in the 50 and 100 Free
  • Mikaila McLaughlin was 9th in the 200 IM and 10th in the 100 Fly
  • Diver Emma Sekula (Freshman) 1st place
