Meet Recap

Heading into the Saginaw Valley League Swimming and Diving Championships at Saginaw Valley State University, Powers Catholic varsity swim coach Andy Quijano was expecting some good swims from his young team. “I can see a growth in the team from last year that really shows the team’s hard work and dedication to the season. The last few weeks have been rough practices and they have continued to push through it,” said Quijano.
Indeed, several Powers swimmers posted their best times of the season in the preliminary round of the Championships. Some of the girls posted all-time bests, and many posted top-24 times in the prelims and are now qualified to swim in Saturday’s finals.
The top performances for Powers in the preliminaries came from junior Sarah Kirtek who posted all-time bests in the 100 Butterfly and 100 Breaststroke. Kirtek is the top-seed in Saturday’s Championship Final for the Butterfly and is seeded 2nd in the Breaststroke. Sophomore Allie Dasky swam a season-best in the 50 Freestyle and is seeded 5th in the Championship Final. She also qualified for the finals in the 100 Free, swimming another season-best. Freshman Emily Moriartey is seeded 6th in the 100 Backstroke Championship Final and will also swim in the 200 Individual Medley final.
Other Powers swimmers who qualified to swim in Saturday’s finals are: Barbara Davidek (200 & 100 Free), Jacquelin Krznarich (200 & 500 Free), Rylie Dunigan (200 & 500 Free), Kristin Ammerman (200 IM & 100 Fly), Kadie Sardo (200 IM & 100 Fly), Sydney Lawrence (50 Free & 100 Fly), Amanda Graves (100 Back), and Tessa Peabody (100 Breast).
