Girl’s Recap

E.D. White Catholic proved their depth once again in a commanding LHSAA 3A state win. Their win makes this the 4th consecutive year (7th year overall) the Cardinals have won the meet and claimed the title. The girls did not win any events, but consistently had 2-4 scoring swims in every event. Their highest relay points came from getting 3rd in the 400 free relay (Toups, Gautreaux, Grainer, M. Hansen) – 3:46.18. Molly Hansen picked up two second place finishes in the 100 fly (59.75) and 100 breast (1:08.44).

Runner-up University stacked two of their relays to get first place finishes in the 200 medley (with a new division 3A record – 1:52.30) and 400 free (3:44.09). Both relays had Cangelosi, Baumgartner, Peak, and Van Hoogstraten. Abby Baumgartner won the 100 breast with a new division 3A record of 1:07.08 and was second in the 200 IM (2:14.47).
