GATES MILLS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) congratulated athletes from the Hawken School men’s and women’s swimming teams for their fantastic accomplishments over the past two seasons.

The 2016 and 2017 teams delivered dominant performances at the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Swim meets in both years. Highlights from the 2017 state meet include wins in the women’s 200-yard medley relay and the 400-yard freestyle relay, as well as victories by senior Crile Hart in the women’s 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard backstroke. The Hawken women ended the meet with their 19th consecutive state championship, giving them the third-longest active streak of consecutive women’s state swimming championships in the country.

Not to be outdone, the Hawken men claimed their third state championship, dominating the relays with wins in 200-yard medley relay and the 400-yard freestyle relay and a second place finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

“These teams represent the best that Hawken School and the sport of swimming can produce,” said Rep. Anielski. “The comradery, good sportsmanship, and excellent athletic performances displayed by both swimming teams are an excellent example to everyone in Cuyahoga County, the state of Ohio, as well as the country. I look forward to seeing what these young swimmers accomplish in high school, college, and beyond!”

This year’s team was led to victory by Coach Todd Hart, who ended his first year as the head coach at Hawken with a state championship.
