Lauren Cabalka did her best to make last week a fun one for Middleton’s girls swimming team.

Cabalka, the Cardinals’ head coach, knows her team has had some intense weeks this year — and has several more coming.

So on a week where the schedule was lighter, Cabalka let her team set the lineup against Janesville Parker last Friday.

“This was a fun meet for us,” Cabalka said. “It was Homecoming, teacher appreciation night and a chance for the girls to swim a lineup that they put together. 

“We started the season with some intense back-to-back-to-back weeks and are gearing up for our hardest block of training next week, so it’s a great time in the season to have some fun.”

Middleton did just that, rolling past the visiting Vikings, 140-30. The most points a team can score in a dual meet is 140, and the Cardinals did just that.

“The girls swam some great races, executed on a lot of details we have been working on and put together some nice relays,” Cabalka said. “We ended up with our third perfect score of the season, which is incredibly difficult to do.”

Middleton’s 200-yard medley relay team of Kaitlyn Peters, Maddy Lawn, Brianna Acker and Andrea Young finished first. The quartet of Alex Anagnostopoulos, Gianna Fussell, Berkley Smith and Ella Needham was second, and the foursome of Natalie Charles, Sophie Benson, Abby Ensenberger and Eva Anagnostopoulos was third.

Middleton’s 200-yard freestyle relay team of Abby Utter, Needham, Amanda George and Molly Haag was first. The foursome of Smith, Gabriela Pierobon Mays, Fussell and Alex Anagnostopoulos was second, while the quartet of Young, Eva Anagnostopoulos, Acker and Ryanne Woodall was third.

And Middleton’s 400-yard freestyle relay team of Haag, Sarah Foley, Utter and Charles was first. The foursome of Norah Martin, Molly Keebler, Smith and Benson was second, while the quartet of Anna Reihl, Serena Haack, Emma Chandler and Needham was third.

Pierobon Mays, Alex Anagnostopoulos and Foley went 1-2-3 in the 200-yard freestyle, while Ensenberger, Keebler and Anna Reihl were first, second and third, respectively, in the 200-yard IM.

Ensenberger, Martin and Benson went 1-2-3 in the 50-yard freestyle, while Haack, Utter and Acker claimed the top three spots in the 100-yard butterfly. Young, George and Charles went 1-2-3 in the 100-yard freestyle, while Haag, Peters and Lawn were first, second and third in the 500-yard freestyle.

Peters, Smith and Keebler went 1-2-3 in the 100-yard backstroke, while Charles, Lawn and Eva Anagnostopoulos were first, second and third in the 100-yard breaststroke.

“These girls are making huge strides and gaining confidence along the way,” Cabalka said. “Our best swimming is yet to come and I can’t wait to watch it unfold.”
