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.”
