Hawks keep looking forward after another blowout

The MTHS Women’s Swim team took a tough loss against Shorecrest High School, with a final score of 133-26.

However, despite the score, the team was not discouraged and held high spirits throughout the meet. From the sidelines, echoing cheers could be heard from when the meet began at 3 p.m. to when it ended at approximately 5 p.m.

Junior Captain Emily Webb finished eighth in the 50 Yard Freestyle Event, with a time of 30.56, just falling behind an Edmonds Woodway High School member with a time of 30.15.

“I focused on my technique,” Webb said about how she competed. “I wanted to finish strong and I think I did.”

Webb said her team has been practicing since before school started, sometime around August. She also said she’s very proud of her team for how well everyone has been doing, especially having won their first meet of the season against Lynnwood High School, the first meet the MTHS Women’s Swim team has won in over two years.

“I’m happy all the girls are dedicated,” Webb said, smiling as she watched a member of her team compete in an event.

Swim Coach Amber Armstrong agreed with Webb, saying she thinks this last match was the best the team has done, time-wise. A lot of the girls have been cutting time, according to Armstrong. She said she’s not focused on whether or not the team wins the meet, as long as they’re cutting time and doing better than the past meet.

The team’s next meet will be at the Lynnwood Recreation Center, a home meet against Mariner High School at 2:45 p.m.

Before then, Armstrong said she will be looking at how Mariner’s team competes in certain events and set up her own swimmers in events depending on the strengths and weaknesses of the team.
