2017 Spring Valley Girls Swimming Capsule


Head coach: Jean Rees, ninth season

Top athletes: Ashlyn Lessenger (Sr.), Kara Thompson (Sr.), Allie Jacobson (Fr.)

Outlook: Lessenger and Thompson both have state meet experience and will be among the leaders on a team that has plenty of youth, including newcomer Jacobson.

“We have a new and exciting young team of mostly freshmen and sophomores,” Rees said. “After returning to Class 4A, our goal is to hold our own in the Southwest League of the Sunset Region.”
