The Huron girls’ swimming and diving team is coming off an outstanding year under Coach Andrea Stanczyk, who has been with the program for six years. The River Rats had a 5-3 overall record, finished second in the very tough SEC Red Division and landed in 10th place at the state finals last year.
Yeah, that’s what you would call an outstanding season.
For an encore, the River Rats have a strong lineup back from last year and hope to make another big splash in the very competitive SEC Red and beyond.

“The athletes have a dedication to their teammates and to the sport which is shown through their hard work at practice,” says Stancyzk, whose team made a strong showing at this week’s Huron Relays (see link above).
At last season’s state finals, Huron’s medley relay team of Jewel Huang, Annaliese Streeter, Abbey Ketslakh and Yu Jin Hyun was 10th in 1:47.05. The Huron 400 free relay team of Ketslakh, Hyun, Streeter and Huang was 10th in 3:34.03.
Jin Hyun returns to the lineup this year for her senior season. Both Streeter and Ketslakh were only freshmen last season and turned in impressive performances at the state finals. In the 100 free, Ketslakh was seventh for Huron in 51.84. And Streeter was 12th for the River Rats in the breaststroke in 1:06.84.
Also returning this year for Huron is Annie Costello. As a freshman last year, Costello took fourth in diving with 401.6 points. Rebecca Darnell was a regional diver last year and returns for her senior year.
Junior Anna Leone and sophomore Emily Tran were both state qualifiers last year and return for 2018.
