TIdal Waves girls win league titles

July 12, 2011

The Tongie Tidal Waves finished their season Friday by winning 11 league titles — all in girls events — at the Lake and Country Club League Championships.

The Tonganoxie swimming team finished fourth in the team standings at the league meet thanks in large part to first-place finishes in nine individual events at Wollman Aquatic Center in Leavenworth.

With victories in three different individual events, Courtney Cruickshank (10 and under) had a very successful Friday at the league meet. She won the butterfly, breaststroke and medley races and swam on two championship relay teams.

Emma Stilgenbauer (18 and under) won league titles in both the freestyle and backstroke races, Mikayla Rhoads (6 and under) finished first in freestyle and backstroke and Abigail Frye (12 and under) took home a league crown in freestyle.

The Tidal Waves’ 10 and under girls won a pair of relay championships. Cruickshank, Rilee Garner, Marisa Kearns and Caia Niemeyer won the freestyle relay event. Cruickshank, Kearns and Niemeyer were joined by Meron Hayden as winners of the medley relay.

Swimmers had to qualify for the individual league finals by finishing in the top 12 at prelims on July 5 and 6.
