The sweet smell of roses filled the air of Webster’s area along the perimeter of the pool at the Jan. 21 Cape Central women’s swim meet.
The Stateswomen had roses going around for almost everyone at the “City of Roses,” as the swim team placed sixth of 22 teams at the meet, earning trips to State in four different events while doing so.
Freshman standout Parker Hagemann shined especially brightly, taking first place in the 200-freestyle event and cruising to State qualification.
She was also a part of Webster’s imposing relay team that swam to State-qualifying times in two events: the 200 free relay, where it was event champion in first place again, and the 200 medley relay, where it placed eighth. The relay team consists of Hagemann, juniors Katherine Kempf and Isi Albers, and sophomore Kendra Howard.
Howard additionally qualified for State on her own with her seventh place finish in the 200 individual medley.
Webster added a win over Rockwood Summit on Jan. 24, continuing its hot streak as it heads toward the post-season.
