TOMAHAWK - Two high school swim teams in the Northwoods always send athletes to the state meet.
The past few years these two teams have gone through the entire regular season undefeated until meeting each other in their last conference dual.
That time has come again as Tomahawk hosted Rhinelander Thursday to battle it out for the GNC swim title.
Rhinelander came into the meet being unbeaten but their times couldn't compare.
The Hatchets won all 11 events in the battle of the two undefeated teams with a final score of 106 to 64.
The meet was even more special for the two Hatchet senior captains, Katy Volz and Kaylee Svacina.
Both girls wanted to make sure their last meet wouldn't be forgotten by beating both of their personal records.
"It's so awesome," said senior Katy Volz. "Going into this meet we have been training super hard so we knew we were all going to be really tired but we pulled off some really great swims and a lot of personal records."It was just a great feeling beating Rhinelander and just coming out undefeated."
Tomahawk is now in the driver's seat for another GNC title.
Not only will the Hatchets make history by winning 5 consecutive conference championships, the team broke another season record Thursday.
"We did not lose one event all year, it's crazy," said Tomahawk swimming head coach Theresa L'Esperance. "All week long we did everything we could to get ourselves ready for today [Thursday] and we did that."
The high school swim teams will now start preparing for the final GNC varsity meet on October 26th.
