The Warhawks continue to make a good impression on people as they took a strong second in the nine-school Nicolet Sprint Invitational on Friday.

"They have really got it rolling," Nicolet coach Dwight Davis said. "Their depth is really starting to make them a serious factor (in major meets)."

"We had another barnburner this weekend," Warhawks coach Kevin Ewald said. "… Shorewood's top end speed and added depth was enough to outlast us through the last race."

Germantown, behind a one-two-three sweep of the 50 butterfly, scored 324 points for its spot in the nine-school field as Woodland Relays champion Shorewood won with 353 and Whitefish Bay was third with 317.

In that 50 free, Sam Siebenaller won in 27.58 seconds as Abby Schabel was second (28.61) and Khia Kurtenbach was third (28.95).

Other firsts went to Rachel Siebenaller in the 200 free (1:58.33), Kurtenbach in the 50 backstroke (29.19), the 400 medley relay of Kurtenbach, Skye Beckes, Haley DeGrace and Alle Raglund (3:54.55); and the 500 free relay of Schabel, Beckes, Kurtenbach and Emma Green (4:28.78).

Other top finishes for the Warhawks included the following: 100 individual medley: Sam Siebenaller, third (1:03.33); 100 free: Rachel Siebenaller, third (54.93); 200 individual medley: Raglund, fourth (2:31.08); and 50 breast stroke: Haley DeGrace, third (31.89)

The Indians still finished fourth in the overall league rankings as Brookfield Central completed its wire-to-wire championship with a 335 mark.
