The Phillips Wave traveled to Lakeland Union High School in Minocqua Jan. 11 to compete in a Central Wisconsin Swim Conference meet. In addition to Lakeland and Phillips, other schools attending were Antigo, Medford, and Rice Lake. Many Phillips swimmers swam to season-best time in this meet which was encouraging to see said coach Joe Tingo.
For the 8-and-under group, Avalyn Huggard earned a 4th in the 25 free, and 5th in the 50 free and 25 fly. Claryse Johnson grabbed a 6th place finish in the 25 free. The 100 free relay of Claryse Johnson, Sophia Lenz, Amber Vandehei, and Avalyn Huggard placed 2nd.
