Times are still dropping for Port Washington lady swimmers

The scoreboard isn’t showing it, but Port Washington High School’s lady swimmers are still setting personal records.

At the Shorewood Invite on Saturday, the Pirates scored all their 18 points on relays and took 15th place of 17 teams.

The 200-meter freestyle relay team of Allison Schmutzler, Caroline Hadacek, Elaina Wichmann and Kamryn Lapacek swam a PR of 1 minute, 58.57 seconds, good for eight points.

The 200 medley relay team of Wichmann, Sydney Hannert, Erin Grisar and Lapacek earned six points with a 2:16.42, good for 14th.

“This meet had some of the fastest swimmers in the state and the girls did very well considering this tough competition,” co-coach Danielle Peiffer said.

Last Thursday, the Pirates lost to visiting Plymouth, 123-58.

Hannert led the way by scoring 10 points. Lapacek and Wichmann scored eight each. Grisar had seven and Schmutzler had six.

Wichmann won the 100 backstroke with a personal-record 1:13.73.

Hannert won the 100 butterfly with a 1:12:12. Grisar was second in 1:20.36.

Hannert was second in the 200 freestyle in 2:22.83 and in the 500 freestyle with a PR in 6:45.42.

Lapacek was second in the 50 freestyle in 28.1 and in the 100 freestyle in 1:01.66.

“We had more time drops compared to our meet on Tuesday. Definitely a good trend,” Peiffer said.

On Oct. 9, the Pirates lost at Whitefish Bay, 140-35.

Hannert and Lapacek each scored six points.

Lapacek finished second in the 50 freestyle in 28.15.

Hannert was third in the 500 freestyle in 6:36.86 and in the 100 butterfly in 1:13.21.

“We had some time drops but most girls are holding steady in their times, which is to be expected at this point in the season,” Peiffer said.

Now in the season’s final stretch, the Pirates were scheduled to host Homestead on Tuesday and head to Grafton for the North Shore Conference diving and swimming meet on Oct. 26 and 27. Diving will be held on Friday, Oct. 26, with swimming to follow the next day.
