Waukesha South/Catholic Memorial Co-Op Vaults to #2 in Latest WI Rankings

The boys’ swimming & diving team from Waukesha South/Catholic Memorial vaulted not only into the top 10 of the latest Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches’ Association high school rankings in the latest version, released late Sunday evening, but jumped all the way to 2nd place. The team is a co-op between the public Waukesha South and private Catholic Memorial that last won a Division I (big school) state title in Wisconsin in 2010, and came out 6th last season.

The jump comes after a very fast start to the season for WS/MC. So far this year, they’ve beaten #3 Arrowhead, a conference rival, in a dual meet, and then victored in last week’s Waukesha-tri-meet with a thunderous victory over the North/KM/Pewaukee co-op and West/Mukwonago co-op.

They sit 2nd in the latest rankings behind only Madison Memorial – an overwhelming favorite to repeat as state champions after finishing 112 points ahead of their next-closest competitors from Madison West (314-202) last season.

Division 2 had a big leap of its own, as the Elkhorn Area High boys jumped 9 spots from 11th to 2nd in the latest rankings.
