The Westminster Christian Academy girls swim team will be out to defend their Metro League championship.
The annual meet begins at 4 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 6) at MICDS.
Wildcats coach Kent Kehr said his squad looks forward to competing in the conference meet.
“It’s certainly a highlight for the girls and a chance to better their times especially those looking for state consideration,” Kehr said. “Each girl hopefully will see a PR (personal record) in one or more of their events. Hopefully all that success will add up to a conference victory.”
Westminster is the defending conference champions.
Everyone is looking forward to swimming at MICDS.
“It is should be a fun meet as it’s now at the new MICDS pool so that makes it even more exciting,” Kehr said.
It’s been a solid season for the Wildcats.
“We’ve won all our meets except for one so we’re 12-1 in duals,” Kehr said.
Westminster also earned a first-place finish at the Ladue Invitational.
Freshman Margo O’Meara set two school records in diving this season. She broke both the 6-dive and 11-dive records.
The state meet begins Feb. 15 at the Rec-Plex in St. Peters.
For the Wildcats, Kehr said the only automatic qualifications for individuals are O’Meara and Payton Dunn in the 200 and 500 free.
The 200 free relay team of Sara Boylan, Jenna Galakatos, Brittany Johnson and Mackenzie Wieberg have qualified for state.
Kehr wants the Wildcats to enjoy the league meet.
He said he will emphasize to the girls before the meet to “bring your best, have fun and keep your eyes on Him.”
