Tomahawk Hatchets Continue to Carry Momentum Forward Submitted: 09/18/2014

TOMAHAWK - The Tomahawk Hatchets swim team added another win to their season on Wednesday taking down Wittenberg 98-57.

The team is now 10-0 and is ranked third in the state for D2 swimming.

The Hatchets Head Coach Theresa L'Esperance believes it's the team's attitude that's growing the program.


"They want to win and winning breeds success," L'Esperance said. "It breeds people to come in."

Lauren Hilt was the first Hatchet ever to medal as a freshman in the state meet in both the 50 free and 100 free.

As a sophomore, she has some of the top times in the state. Hilt's athleticism helps the squad in relays.

"Our team has goals and last year we said let's try to get a relay to state," L'Esperance said. "With lauren we got two relays to state."

The Lady Hatchets defeated Ladysmith for the first time in 10 years in early September.

"As the relay ended and we heard the points, that was so great and it's kind of a preview of what's going to happen the rest of the season," said Hilt.

The Hatchets hope to win a conference and sectional championship this year.
They'll compete in Ashwaubenon on Friday.
