The PG squared “Wildcats” finished their season on a very high note last Saturday as they made their way to the podium no fewer than 3 times in individual events and just missed the podium in the 400 yard freestyle relay. The Greenfield co-op team competed in the State Championships in Madison Saturday and finished 1 0th in a field of 76 teams, defeating cross-town rival Muskego for the first time this season.
Head Coach Dale Schrank was very pleased with the performance of his squad. “The was the strongest field of freestylers in the history of Wisconsin swimming, and we were able to hold our own in those events 3 times.” Emilio Perez made it to the podium in both the 50 and 100 yard freestyle, and teammate Jack Lustig also made it to the top 6 in the 500 yard freestyle. The 400 yard freestyle relay also just missed the top 6 in the 400 yard freestyle relay by less than .6 seconds.
“This was the first time in Wisconsin swimming history that a swimmer who went under 21.00 seconds in the 50 yard freestyle did not make the podium in that event. The top 5 swimmers in that event were all within . 1 seconds of each other. Truly an amazing field of sprinters this year.” commented Schrank.
Perez and Lustig pooled their talents with teammates Jackson Zgola and Leo Gandaria and finished 7th in the 400 yard freestyle relay, just missing the podium in that event. Rounding out the field of State qualifiers were Vincent Patti, David Turner, and alternates Colin Hassel and Aaron Shibilski.
“Losing only one senior this year through graduation, and most of the team being sophomores, it bodes very well for the future of PG2 swimming” said Schrank.
