County girls’ swim teams ready to dive in

County girls’ swimming and diving teams are at the edge of the pool deck and ready to kick off their seasons. Defending county and sectional champion Avon again looks to dominate the water, but other schools are also eyeing some great successes.

Avon

After winning its first sectional title in seven years, the Avon Orioles are poised for a repeat of last season. Avon also rang up its fourth consecutive county title last year, a streak they hope to continue.

But for Avon coach Jon Karr, those goals all begin simply and build toward the end of the year.

“My personal goal for this team is to always have 100 percent best times by the end of the season,” he said. “If the kids are process-oriented and come to practice ready to work hard and focused, we should be able to do that. If the girls buy into the process and compete at a high level, we should be in the mix when it comes to county, conference, and sectionals.”

Looking to help lead Avon to those goals are seniors Miranda Fay, Elizabeth Kitching, Melissa Moore, Andzelkia Rzucidlo, and Liz Wishart.

“They have already started proving themselves as positive and effective leaders,” Karr said. “It is evident that they care deeply about this team. Lauren Campbell is a junior who has done a really nice job this fall, and has really led by example.”

Fay, Kitching, Moore, and Wishart, along with Campbell and sophomore Ana Walters, were all state qualifiers from last season.

Walters set a county mark in the 200 individual medley and Wishart set the school record in the 50 free last season.

Mixing in with the core of Avon’s success this year are several underclassmen that could provide an immediate effect. Karr pointed to sophomore Emily Smith and freshmen Hallie Jones, Kira Coapstick, Colleen Fay, and Karyn Kiefer as individuals that “have all made a positive impact with our club team this fall.”
