Wootton vs. Northwest Results:
The Patriots started off our season with an impressive battle against Northwest. Despite missing quite a few athletes, the Patriots fought hard and, while our girls were bested, our boys were victorious! As the snow fell outside of KSAC, our final scores showed how tightly matched our teams were.
Northwest – 96
The meet started off with an impressive display of athleticism and talent from our divers! Congratulations go out to Sarah Rankin and Spencer Bernal for placing second, and Jennifer Weiss for placing third.
The swimming events kicked off with exciting races in the boys and gitls 200 Medley Relay. Congratulations to Steven Mendelson, Jonathan Yune, Jonathan Odim, George Li, Elizabeth Carlson, Grace Li, Joy Shi, and Maddie Grainger.

The excitement continued with 10 more first place finishes! Well done Emma Helgeson (200 free), Jonathan Odim (200 IM), Grace Li (200 IM), George Li (50 free), Joy Shi (50 free), Jonathan Yune (100 free), Joy Shi (100 free), Elizabeth Carlson (100 back), Jonathan Yune (100 breast), and Cece Zhao (100 breast)!
