Coach Nick talking to his swimmers and getting focused for state.

The Regis Jesuit swim and Dive team has had a very successful year with some important meets still to come. The A League meet occurred this past weekend and swimmers Grace Dale, Allie Sanchez, Emma Weber, and Sophia Frie were honored with the All American award. These swimmers won the 200 medley with a time of 1:42. The state final will be held on February 15-16 at Veterans Memorial aquatic center in Aurora. The dive team has also a been big a contributor to the team with star swimmers such as  2024 diver Mia Henninger.

Star swimmer Emma Weber has been a huge contributor to Regis Jesuit’s success this year. She won 200 individual medley at A leagues which is the event she won state in last year. Emma recently competed for the U.S Junior team. She expressed how important this experience and team was when she quotes,”It was really exciting to see the people you look up to for you entire life growing up, you idolize competing for the sake country as them, and getting to race.” she also got ninth place in the 100 yard butterfly at 56.36. Along with the 100 yard breaststroke at 1:04.11. Emma expressed her gratitude for being able to compete on a team again after covid. “Because of covid there was no team, so there wasn’t really a team for two years. So in order to get to go and be on it after two years of not swimming was really exciting.” This quote showed how important being on a team is to Emma.

Star sophomore diver Mia Henninger started off as a gymnast at age 7. From a young age gymnastics was too hard in her body, so she decided to start diving. “Gymnastics was really really hard on my body, I was getting injured every other week.” She soon found her love for diving after seeing kids doing flips off the diving board. Mia says she gets her inspiration from her older brother and her cousin, quoting, “My older brother Charlie, I look up to him so much, he’s such a good guy, and I feel like I can tell him anything. When she graduates she wants to go to college and study journalism. Mia has big dreams and wants to make them a reality.

Senior Shelby Enderlein also provided a great performance for her team to end her senior year. She swam personal bests on both the 50 Yard Free and the 100 Yard Fly, at 25.39s and 1:01.58. We had a chance to interview Shelby about the teams overall performance in prelims and throughout the season. “We did super good in relays, everyone really stepped up to the plate for those.” She added, “Everyone worked so hard this season and it paid off in all places.” It became obvious how strong Shelby’s love for her team reaches when she added, “I have always felt the love of the team throughout all four years, and no team I have ever been on will top it.” We wish Shelby the best on her future teams moving forward.

In conclusion, the Regis Jesuit Swim and Dive team has had a spectacular season. Led by star swimmers committed to schools such as The University of Virginia(Emma Weber), and the University of Dartmouth(Chiara Lopach), and many other prestigious universities, the swimmers and divers at Regis have bright futures ahead of them. Regis also has many great underclassman swimmers and divers such as Mia Henninger to lead them to more tremendous seasons. At this rate, Regis will have many more great seasons in the future.
