Patriot swimmers coming back strong

CLINTONVILLE - The AuSable Valley girls swim team finished with two wins and four losses last year, but will look to rely on their experience with 14 swimmers returning.

Among those returning is sophomore Sierra Cotrona, who last year broke the school record in the breaststroke and went on to compete in the state competition. Also back this year are seniors Alex Hoey, Heather Braid, and Kariana Garrand; juniors Alex Casey, Brittany Friedrich, and Emily Miller; and a host of sophomores including Raychel Agoney, Leann Cook, Teesha Coolidge, Christine Darrah, Kaylee Davis, Alexis Facteau, Emma Helfgott, and Bianca Lawrence.

New to the team are sophomore Karia Booth and freshmen Chelsea Clark, Annie Helfgott, Sidney Murphey, Beatrice O'Toole, and Melanie Wood.

"A strong core of swimmers, along with a team with much depth will allow us the ability to maximize events," said head coach Doug Garrand.
