Lakeland, Tomahawk impress at state swim meet
MADISON - Rhinelander ended up the big winners in yesterday's D2 state swim meet.

The Hodags took home a pair of state titles, but those gold medals aren't the only hardware headed north.

Tomahawk's Kylie Theiler finished on the podium in both of her events.

Theiler took fifth in the 100-yard freestyle and third in the 200-yard freestyle.

She ended up racing against a lot of her friends from the club circuit.

The experience was a little bittersweet.

"It's different and you feel bad, but you've both got to race as hard as you can," Theiler said. "The other person is doing the same thing. And when you're both done, you're so happy for the other person no matter the result. It's just fun to know everybody."

Meanwhile, the Lakeland Thunderbirds grabbed one podium spot.

That was in the 200-yard freestyle relay, where they finished sixth.

It was good enough for the podium by less than a quarter of a second.

"I was like 'oh my gosh, we made it to the podium,'" relay team member Brie Wescott said. "I was freaking out and I was like, 'this is really cool, we worked really hard this season for it, and I'm really happy that we made it.' I'm really proud of all my teammates for trying their hardest.

Merrill and Medford also made an appearance. 

The Raiders logged a podium finish from backstroke swimmer Erin Bergman.

The Bluejays got one in the 200-yard freestyle from freshman Evelyn Blennert.
