In a total team effort that was unmatchable by any of their conference foes, the Lady Wolverines dominated the competition on their way to the 2016 Big 8 Swimming & Diving Championship. Winning 4 of the 5 Relay events, 6 Individual titles, as well as multiple Lady Wolverines placing in several events, the team pulled away from the rest of the field for the Championship.
Freshmen Claudia Guillory won the 200 Backstroke, and the 400 Individual Medley with a conference record time of 4:39.68. Guillory’s swim was voted the performance of the Championship meet for the Women. Fellow Freshmen Nicole Cox won both the 1 meter and 3 meter diving competitions, and Sophomore Shelby Parker won both the 50 and 100 Freestyles to lead to lead the way for the Lady Wolverines.
Winning Relays included the 200 Freestyle Relay team of Parker, Guillory, Sophomore Karinah Hazewood, and Freshmen Kirsten DePauw, the 400 Freestyle Relay team of Parker, Guillory, Hazewood, and Freshmen Corinne Linke, the 800 Freestyle Relay team of Parker, Guillory, Hazewood, and Freshmen Alyssa Alvarez, and the 400 Medley Relay team of Guillory, Freshmen Abigail Brouwer, Freshmen Leah Johnson, and Parker.
The Lady Wolverines qualified 11 athletes, and all 5 of their Relays, for the State Swimming & Diving Championships May 5–7 at East Los Angeles College.
Heading down South as the lone representative from Northern California, and the defending meet Champion, the Lady Wolverines once again put on a great showing, but were nipped at the wire by defending state runner-up, Orange Coast College, to finish 2nd out of 18 schools at the prestigious Mt. SAC Invitational. In a total team effort on the part of the Wolverines, they lead the scoring at the end of the 1st day. On day 2, the Wolverines battled and clawed but were unable to hold off the Pirates to finish in 2nd place overall. Leading the effort by Sierra was freshmen Claudia Guillory with an individual victory in the 100 Backstroke, fellow freshmen Kirsten DePauw with a victory in the 100 IM, and sophomore Hannah Frech winning the 1650 Freestyle.
Coming off a meet championship at Santa Rosa, the Lady Wolverines Swimming & Diving team wanted to keep the momentum rolling, and did just that, as they defeated Big 8 foe Delta College in a dual meet 78-35 in Stockton. Leading the way for the Wolverines with 2 individual victories was freshmen Claudia Guillory in the 200 IM & 100 Backstroke, and fellow freshmen Nicole Cox in the 1M & 3M Diving events. Freshmen Dru Daley and Leah Johnson, and sophomores Shelby Parker and Karinah Hazewood chipped in with Individual victories to help the Wolverine cause. The Wolverines also won the 200 Medley Relay behind Guillory, Abigail Brouwer, Johnson, and Kirsten De Pauw, and the 200 Freestyle Relay behind Parker, Hazewood, Hannah Frech, and Marissa Garcia to sweep the relay events, and seal the victory over the Mustangs.February 6, 2016
