Fresh Blood.

     A small but strong group of returning varsity will be backed by a class of fast freshman this upcoming season.

        “There is a lot of young blood on the team this year so there will be lots of change for the returning varsity members,” 2016 state qualifier and captain Clio Hancock said. “But it will move us in a more positive direction and ultimately benefit the entire team.”

     Last year the Kits ended the season sending six girls to state in three events. Of those six girls, only two, Katy Donati and Clio Hancock, will return to compete this year.

  “It was incredible to be part of such a experienced state team last year,” Hancock said. “But now I’m looking forward to taking what I learned last year and helping to improve our team as a whole.”

     The Kits will compete in their home opener this Friday Sept. 1 against Loyola.

     “Loyola has always traditionally been our first meet,” Hancock said. “They are always a strong team that challenges us right from the start and sets our standards high.”

     The Ramblers placed second in the IHSA state meet this past year and has always had a historically strong program.

    “A lot of my teammates and I swim with these girls outside of high school season,” sophomore Lane Raedle said. “So it’s always fun to race against them.”

About the Contributors
Chris Werner, Sports Editor

My name is Chris Werner, and I am a senior at ETHS. I have written for The Evanstonian for three years and hold the position of Sports Editor this year. I also was a color commentator for the Evanston boys and girls basketball teams this past season. Apart from writing on The Evanstonian, I have created my own sports blog called Werner’s Words. I plan to study journalism in college. I  have also been a member of the ETHS golf team for four seasons.

Jonah Charlton, Executive Editor

My name is Jonah Charlton. I’m a senior and Executive Editor for The Evanstonian. I oversee the Arts & Entertainment, Sports and Photo and Art sections. Prior to this year, I was a photographer (2015-17), Photo and Art Editor (2017-2018), Layout Editor (2017-2018) and Staff Writer (2017-2018). As a writer and photographer, I’ve covered community events such as the fate of the Harley Clarke mansion to major school events such as the boys’ basketball state semifinal game and the student led walkout against gun violence. Outside The Evanstonian, I play tennis, teach one through six year old children at Chiaravalle Montessori School and am on the Chicago International Student Film Council. While I am unsure of what my future holds, The Evanstonian has provided a space where my communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills have flourished.
