From coach Habusta:

Tremendous job by Sault athletes. Divers led the way Friday night and really set the tone for the rest of the meet, with first year diver Alyssa McKinney and second year divers Cameron Bauers and Conner Habusta all earning podium spots.

Swimmers carried the momentum into the water Saturday morning. With only two Juniors and no seniors swimming at finals, our team was very young but showed maturity beyond their years.

Aliah Robertson had another career day, with two wins. Big win and a up record in the 200IM against Peyton Johnson from Kingsford who had never lost a high school race. And another fantastic time in the 100 fly.

Joanna Arbic, shocked the field as the only other double champion in the girl side. Fastest 100 free in Sault High history and an amazing swim to win an absolutely loaded 50 free.

Anna Hildebrand has two amazing top times in the 200 and 500 free. Swam better then expected Two second place finishes as a freshman is really hard to do.

Andrew Innerebner did what he does every year. Goes out and swam lights out and set team and UP records. Dominated the field in the 200 free and best his own UP record by two seconds. And then turned around a few events later to do it all over again in the 100. A great day for him.

And Conner Habusta with a great performance in one of the toughest and closest diving competitions in years. Iron sharpened iron all season as Conner and Cameron Bauers pushed each other year long and led to a great 3-4 finish.

Our role swimmers stepped up big time in relays and securing points . Lizzie Ohman, Alyssa Claxton, Brynn Beaulieau, Kallen Miller and Alyssa McKinney with a great meet for the girls and Conner Habusta, Cameron Bauers, Torin Miller, Sabastian levay and Connor Daley with a great swim meet for the boys.

We’re already looking forward to next year, losing no athletes from our roster and returning 5 all up team members including the top male and female swimmer in the UP
