Elmbrook Swim Club had a grate showing over the weekend at a Wisconsin meet, winning overall to become the Big Cheese Champs at what was the equivalent of six dual meets.

The long-course meet, which was hosted by Schroeder YMCA and sponsored by Clock Shadow Creamery, had seven Wisconsin female teams compete against each other. The meet was scored as if each team competed in a dual meet individually against each other. EBSC won all six of its dual meets, with team members taking home cheese curds as a prize.

Several swimmers had particularly gouda performances. EBSC’s Maggie Wanezek won two events, the 200m back in 2:17.83 and 200m IM in 2:22.56, the latter of which was a personal best. She also swam backstroke as part of EBSC’s winning 400m medley relay, which also consisted of Lucy Thomas on breaststroke, Sophia Brueggeman on butterfly, and Audrey Olen on freestyle.

Thomas also won the 200m free in 2:07.68, and came in 2nd in the 200m breaststroke, behind SSTY’s Gabrielle LePine. LePine, an Iowa State recruit, swam the event in 2:36.36, a personal best.

Two other EBSC swimmers had sharp (cheddar) swims, winning a combination of one individual event and one relay. Reese Tiltmann, a 2023 Indiana commit, won the 400m free in 4:30.98 and was part of the winning 400m free relay. She also went a personal best in the 800m free, 9:21.16, which earned her second. Wisconsin commit Abby Wanezek, also part of that 400m free relay, won the 100m free in 58.80.

Tiltmann and the Wanezek sisters are consistently impressive members of EBSC. Overall, EBSC swimmers won 8 out of 11 events. The only non-EBSC winners were LePine, LAKE’s Hailey Tiernan in the 50m free (26.88, a personal best), and OZ’s Casey Stephens in the 800m free (9:14.51).
