Tomahawk seniors celebrate last season with back-to-back sectional championship
UW-STEVENS POINT - A year ago, the Tomahawk Hatchets won the sectional title and every day since then, they knew they wanted another one.

"Thinking and knowing we're seniors, that's an accomplishment we've always wanted to make and the fact that we accomplished it, feeling is just incredible," said senior Kirstin Marcks.

The Hatchets won five out of the 11 events and won by 76 points.

"It was really fun to see everyone perform their best out of the whole year and even our one swimmer who was tapered for last week, she dropped time too which was amazing," said senior Rachel Dallman.

Dallman and Marcks are the only two seniors on the swim team. Saturday's win was their 3rd sectional championship.

"The fact that it's going to hang up on the wall in our school is really amazing because we'll always know that it was because of us," said Dallman.

Their leadership over the last few months has made a big impact on the younger swimmers.

"They're so important to this team, I'm really going to miss them both next year," said sophomore Kylee Theiler.

But the team has one more week with the two girls. The state meet is Friday night in Madison.

"Kirstin's always there saying, 'Okay, let's start the next set, let's get it going'. They're really big for our team, not just in practices," said Theiler.

They're focused on the big meet, but Dallman and Marcks can't help but think about how their time at Tomahawk is coming to a close.

"It is so sad. But I love this team. I had such a great four years. Without the team members that I had, they would not have made it such a great experience," said Marcks.

That state meet will be on Friday at 6:30 at the Natatorium in Madison.
