Hononegah girls swimming wins first NIC-10 title in program history
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - For the first time in school history Hononegah girls swimming was crowned NIC-10 champion after beating Boylan Wednesday night and finishing the regular season undefeated.
The Indians won their final conference dual meet against the Titans 127-75 inside the Boylan Swim Complex to cap off the season 9-0.
Amber Goldhagen, Maclaryn Leonard, Elena Kitzman and Gracie Colvin powered the way for Hono with victories in their respective events.
“It’s super cool to finish up this way," said Kitzman. "I never thought in a million years this is how the season would have ended or what my last year would have looked like, but I’m happy to at least have a season.”
“I think that we did a really good job and really came together and were able to push through and get everyone hyped up and able to swim fast,” said Colvin.
“They’re so resilient in being able to deal with the adversity," said head coach Brian McGuire. "They just bounced back. They’re just happy to be together, to work together, to swim together and I was really proud of them. It was a great coaching opportunity for me this year.”
With no conference meet, the Indians will wrap up 2020 at the Byron Sectional on October 24.
