MADISON - On Friday, the Tomahawk Hatchets stunned even themselves with how well they did at the state swim meet.
The team has had tremendous leaders in their two seniors all season, but on Friday night, you could see that leadership being passed down to the younger girls.
Junior Kaylie Svacina's 100 breast stroke finish gave the team a very big boost in overall points.
"I wasn't expecting that at all. Last year I made it in the breast stroke as well and I got last place. So I was just going for something above last place this year," said Svacina.
Svacina swam a time of 1:07 which gave her a 6th place finish out of 16 swimmers, so she definitely reached that goal.
That podium helped push the team up the scoreboard and played a major part in the 4th place finish.
They wanted to be in the top ten after finishing 11th last year. But to get 4th, that was huge for the team.
Sophomore Kylee Theiler finished 4th in both the 200 and 500 freestyle.
"I didn't drop time in my 200, so I thought if I can stay around my same time in my 500, I was going to be really excited. Dropping time and getting that close to going under a 5:10 is just insane," said Theiler.
