Girls Varsity Swimming · Girls Varsity Swimming finishes 4th and 11th place at Fenton Tiger Relays


  Place Points
Grand Blanc High School 4th 298

Having a large team of over 50 swimmers and divers, the Bobcats were excited to get the opportunity to take a Grand Blanc A team and Grand Blanc B team to the Fenton Tiger Relays on Saturday. Normally, and in years past, only a small portion of the team would compete in the relay meet. With the opening for another team this year a majority of the Lady Bobcats were able to participate and show the strength of the entire team.

In attendance at the invitational was a mixture of former KLAA opponents, new SVL opponents, and other Genesee County area teams. It was a great meet for Grand Blanc to transition their focus towards the SVL teams while getting to race the KLAA teams that they have enjoyed competing against over the last several years.

The GB divers got the Bobcats off to a great start in the morning. Amanda Smiley and Maddy DuHart finished 4th for the GB A team while Amanda Benchley and first-year diver Marissa Hulleza finished 6th for GB B. During the swimming portion of the meet, the GB A team was able to secure 5 top 3 finishes and the GB B team had 3 top 8 finishes. The 200 Medley Relay of Sophie Curtis, Sarah Anderson, Megan Sieloff, and Tobi Whitmore was Grand Blanc’s champion relay taking the win by almost 2 seconds.
