Season Review:

The 2018-2019 Lady Katfish team finished the season with each swimmer cutting time throughout the season. I am ecstatic for each swimmer going a personal best during the course of the season. This with a much larger team
than in years past and these Lady Katfish were also adjusting to their fourth new coach in four years.

This team came to understand what it would be to “Trust the Process”, which means this team came to swim every single meet and performed with grit and determination throughout the course of our swim season.

These Lady Katfish with their hard work swam to a winning dual meet record and swimming lights out to bring home the first North Central Conference Championship. This was only the girls third NCC Championship in school history and the first time the trophy had been brought home in 19 years!

These ladies had one phenomenal swim year; however, our senior leadership of Addison Reckard, Madi Cleaver, and Rachel Wyrick will be missed. We wish them well in their future endeavors.

Thanks to the managers, fans, and parents for helping to make this season for the Lady Katfish one for the record books!
