The Montclair girls were led by senior Samantha Corredor, junior Jordan Caro, sophomores Maya Crawford, Kathrynna Demetillo and Louisa Skerry and freshman Mia Padberg in the individual events.  This girls team exhibited strong team spirit all year and that spirit was evident in their final 200 free relay of the season where the Mounties captured first and second place, earning 12 of their 83 points in that one event. 

The A relay, made up of junior Amy Chen, freshman Josephine Myung, Caro and Crawford took first and the all-senior B relay team of Caroline Creaser and team captains Mishi Chow, Lina Koschik and Stephanie Fox swimming in the last meet of their High School careers had their best time of the season and captured second place. Koschik reflected, “the friendships, team work and camaraderie I have enjoyed with my teammates on the MHS swim team for the last four years have been the greatest joys of my time in high school”.

Nearly all of the leading swimmers for the Mountie girls will be returning next year and the girls are looking forward to welcoming some strong freshmen into the program. 

Coach Ed Koenigsfest said, “I am so proud of how hard our girls worked and how well they swam this season.  As we get ready to send our awesome seniors off to college, I feel lucky to have the talented, dedicated swimmers who will continue on with the team next year.”
