Swimming, soccer, dance line

Becca’s week

Ebbott won the 100 butterfly in 1:01.57 at the Eastern Wisconsin Conference meet Saturday, and was also a part of the winning 200 medley relay (1:58.33) and 200 free relay (1:44.67).

All-time team sports achievement

“Winning sectionals and taking fourth at State as a team for the past two years.”

All-time individual achievement

“Qualifying for four events at State last year and winning a gold and two silver medals at State.”

No. 1 athletic goal

“Breaking a minute in the 100 butterfly and getting back to the State meet.”

Becca’s thoughts

“It’s been a great year. It’s been more of a building year, but fun to watch everyone rise up and take their spots. Everyone’s had to grow.

“The goal is to get back (to State). For myself, I’m hoping I can break a minute in the 100 butterfly (her best is 1:00.93). I’m close.”

Coach Mike Slagle’s thoughts

“Becca is an extremely hard worker, very conscientious of all her workouts. She’s one of our team captains, and definitely motivates. She has some good goals set for herself in the butterfly.”
