As co-captain of the women’s swim team, senior Parker Hagemann has been a valuable asset for her whole high school swim career.

The team came fifth at State this year, where Hagemann scored 31 points.

Following her high school career, senior Parker Hagemann will continue swimming at the University of Nebraska – Omaha (UNO) for the next four years.

“It just felt like a perfect match,” Hagemann said.

About choosing UNO, Hagemann said,“Leading up to my decision the coaches expressed the most interest in me over other teams.”

Hagemann added that the coaches flew in to watch her swim.

Although the team cannot bond in person currently, Hagemann and her future teammates are finding ways to connect.

“I have been in contact with the girls on the team currently along with the incoming freshman every week on Zoom calls and through group chats,” Hagemann said.

Although she is moving on, Hagemann will leave a lasting impact on the team.

Senior manager Milo Broshears said, “She was someone everyone looked up to. She motivated everyone else on the team to push themselves to be a better swimmer as well as a better teammate.”
