Hatchet Girls Swimming Team Finishes Fourth at the Small School State Meet
Published on 10/16/2017 under Sports Heading into Small School State in Shorewood, the Hatchets compiled some double practices and 16 miles of yardage. They were tired, but knew everyone else would be too. Tomahawk would finish the meet with a fourth place finish, with Madison Edgewood winning the meet. The Hatchet divers gave us a nice start with a sixth place medal for Karli Woodall and a very nice personal improvement by Tianna Gerstenberger. Tomahawk started the swim portion slow, which appears to be a challenge for them. The Medley got off to one of our slowest starts all season, an 8th place finish. Once the medley was out of the way, the Hatchets began a slow but steady climb back up to where they needed to be. The freestyle events were the best. The short-axis events did not perform as well. Short-axis strokes are the breaststroke and butterfly. Adding the extra mileage will put a strain on strokes that are not as efficient in the water. The long-axis strokes held up well to the extra mileage. Kylee Theiler continues to amaze everyone. She placed 4th in both her individuals and set a new school record in the 500. Captain Rachel Dallman, also continues to show her confidence in her sprint events. She placed 5th in the 50 and a great 3rd place in the 100. Her 100 is just off her personal best. Co-Captain Kristin Marcks broke the 6:00 minute mark in her 500. There are a few gold standard swimmers like to achieve, breaking 1:00 minnute in the 100 and the 6:00 minute in the 500.  The Hatchet sprint relays ended the day with outstanding times. This team believes we are a second half team, and they proved it on Saturday. Katy Volz had the quickest reaction time off the blocks to lead off our 200 relay team. Theiler, having just swam a record 500, went in 2nd to swim a great leg. Benaszeski also has a fantastic start and added to our lead over 4 other teams. Madison Edgewood had gained the lead by this time, swimming state champions from last years team. Dallman anchored the relay and gave us a solid 2nd place and the fastest time we have swum this year. The 400 Free Relay also had a big leap to overcome swimming in lane 1. They were confidant, even though Megan Marcks had recently swum the backstroke and Kaylie Svacina had just pulled herself out of the pool swimming a season best breaststroke. Teammates were literally standing right over lane 1 encouraging the ladies to a great 4th place finish and a season best. Theiler led off with a blistering sprint, then Marcks and Svacina followed swimming identical splits. Our sprint leader, Dallman kept the team in a solid 4th place finish. These schools are all small school division teams, yet with the exception of Brookfield Academy, a private school, we were by far the smallest team by school population. The Hatchet Team represents their community very well with pride and hard work.

Hatchet Volleyball Team Defeats Lakeland
Published on 10/11/2017 under Sports The Tomahawk Hatchet Varsity Volleyball Team ends the regular season with a three games to one victory over Lakeland on Tuesday night.  Game scores were:  25-13, 25-17, 16-25 and 25-13.  In game two, Courtney Theiler served ten times in a row to take the Hatchets from 15 to 25 to get the game.

Tomahawk ends the Great Northern Conference with a 3-9 record and will open WIAA Regional play on Tuesday, October 17. The JV 1 came out strong against the Lakeland T-birds in game one defeating them 25-22.  However a win wasn't in the cards as they dropped the next 2 games 16-25 and 8-15. A lack of aggressiveness and communication led to the Hatchet demise. The bright spot in the evening was Brooklyn Nelson and Ashley Klopatek's blocking and Jen DuPlayee's serving. The JV2 ladies took one of three from the lady thunderbirds tonight. The ladies had a rollercoaster night, playing real strong at times and falling to too many errors at others; too inconsistent. Leading the charge with strong serving was Kirara Isotani with 6 aces followed by Kallie Massa also with a pair.
