"I am so proud of these girls and I couldn't expect more and to be able to represent Lakeland as a team, I am so very grateful and I am honored."
The Northwoods will be overwhelmingly represented at the state swim meet in Madison on Friday.
For the first time since 2015, the Lakeland girls' swim team will be sending more than one swimmer to the UW-Natatorium.
The Thunderbirds qualified in three individual events and two relays.
Sophomore Rylee Ahlborn will compete in four different events.
That's a school record for Lakeland.
"It feels really good, I didn't expect that. I was shooting more for the relays and then they told me on the way home from sectionals that I made it and I was just really excited," Ahlborn said.
The Thunderbirds also broke a school and conference record in the 200-yard freestyle relay this season.
The record dates back to 2003, the year the majority of the girls were born.
Now they have the chance to break it again Friday.
