Expected top performers for Danville are Anna Eschbach, Sydney Kroll, Renae Schuldt, and Isabelle Mitchell.
“I have a strong core group of sprinters,” Miller said. “I know a couple of them won their events at conference last year or came close to winning them. My event winners at conference I would love for them to repeat again and my ones who were close I’d love for them to move up some spots.”
Miller also expects to count on freshman Kendall Starztman, who will swim and dive.
Eschbach and Hannah Weiss are the lone seniors for the Warriors.
Cascade looks to build upon its success of last season as the Cadets set several school records. Coach Paul Williams has the Cadets swimming in the right direction and they’re hungry for more success.
“This year our team has three distinct goals,” Williams said. “We want to win the West Central Conference title, win the Clinton Central Invitational meet, and post 10 wins during the season.”
But the Cadets’ aspirations do not stop there.
“Our goals for the county meet are to have at least five of our ladies finish in the top three and at least one county champion,” Williams said. “In addition, we have two swimmers that are eyeing sectional wins and participating in the state meet.”
Junior Tori Breeding set school records last season in the 200 and 500 freestyle. Sophomore Hayley Rosales etched her name in the Cascade record book with her performance in the 100 fly. Senior Regina Solik, Rosales and Breeding were also three-fourths of the record-setting 400 free relay team last season.
Joining that trio this season with the opportunity to contribute are Alyssa Brice and Carley Neuhausel.
“We’re really excited about how that pair has been preparing,” Williams said. “We’re looking for Alyssa to give our 200 free and 500 free events a big boost. Carley will be added to our stable of sprinters and should give us much needed depth in a variety of other events.”
