Just a few years short years ago Silver Lake had one girl qualify for swim sectionals.  On Saturday February 11, 2017 the MIAA South Central Swimming and Diving Sectional Championships were held at MIT in Cambridge, MA. Of the 60 schools that competed at the championship, Silver Lake placed 5th overall! The best the team has done since the program started in 2006-07! This is an incredible achievement accomplished by 5 girls that had qualified and competed at the championship. The five girls included senior captains Lindsay Kalinowski and Kendra Doty, junior Madison Milbert, sophomore Katherine Morrissey and freshman Alexa Connors. Events that the Lakers competed in included: the 200 medley relay that included Milbert, Kalinowski, Morrissey and Connors that placed 3rd. The 400 freestyle relay with the same swimmers that placed 5th. Madison Milbert placed 1st in the 100 backstroke with a 57.72!
