After a season of lots of hard work, Holyoke swimmers earned a total of 10 personal best times at the Northern Colorado Swimming Conference Feb. 4-5 at the Greeley Rec Center.
Coach Adria Colver reported the all six of the Holyoke girls who swim with Sterling High School had one if not two personal top finishes and all swam at finals in either individual or relay events.
Two Holyoke swimmers are advancing to the 4A girls’ swimming state championship in Loveland Feb. 12-13. Jordan Zeiler will be swimming the 200 free relay and the 400 free relay. Amy Krogmeier heads to state as an alternate for the 200 medley, 200 free and 400 free relays.
At the conference meet last weekend, those who swam in Saturday’s finals in individual events include Pamela McWilliams, 200 free and 500 free; Jordan Zeiler, 50 free and 100 free; and Amy Krogmeier, 100 free and 100 breast.
Three relays made the finals with the 200 medley relay qualifying for state.
Sterling High School placed sixth overall at the meet.
Zeiler and Krogmeier swam on the 200 free “A” relay which placed fifth, and Krogmeier swam on the 400 free “A” relay which placed fourth.
In other results, McWilliams placed 17th in the 200 free and 16th in the 500 free. Zeiler placed 12th in both the 50 and 100 free. Krogmeier finished at 15th in the 100 free and 17th in the 100 breast.
Additional Holyoke swimmers with outstanding preliminary results were Briar Bergner in the 100 breast, Nicole Brandt in the 100 free and Brandi Orand in the 50 free.
“Overall it was one of the most improved meets ever for our swimmers,” said Colver. “So many swam well that it was difficult to choose one race or one swimmer as the local highlight of the meet. HHS’s entire six-member team deserves that honor!”
