Swimming & Diving team starts strong


by Patrick Francis ‘19

The 2018-2019 season for the Aqua Cats is going to be a great one.With 40 swimmers and divers on the team, the Wildcats are bound to push each other to the best of their capabilities and perform at high standards. Fourth-year head coach Mike Lehto will be leading these athletes to what is hopefully the state championship.

This year so far, the Aqua Cats have defeated Toledo St. Francis, a swimming and diving powerhouse. They also have hosted the Viking Invitational at CSU. Daeymen Haywood took second in the 100 free while Nicholas Hong got second in the 100 breaststroke, the 200 free relays placed 4th, and the 400 free relays placed 5th.

The future is bright for the Saint Ignatius swimming and diving team. With a strong work ethic and the motivation of each other, we can expect great results from each of the teammates. The team also has a few nearby tournaments, so if possible, try to make it to a meet!

Good luck to all of our swimmers and divers this year.
