Marian Catholic opened its girls swimming season by winning eight of 11 events against host Lincoln-Way West and Crete-Monee and breaking a pool record in the process.
The Spartans' 200-meter freestyle relay team -- junior Katelyn Kresal, freshman Sophia Sesto, junior Candice Harris and senior Carlee Wieser -- broke its own pool record in the event by five seconds as Marian swept all three relays. Isabell Keating won the 200 individual medley, Harris won the 100 butterfly, Kresal too the 500, and Sophia Sesto won the backstroke for the Spartans.
Crete was led by Lauren Carlos in the 100 freestyle, and Lincoln-Way West was led by double winner Emily Gallagher.
