INDIANAPOLIS – Western Boone sophomore Micaela Stieber had a strong end to her sophomore season on Friday night at the Natatorium in Indianapolis.
The Star swimming standout placed sixth in her heat of the 200-yard freestyle the IHSAA State Finals in a school-record time of 2:00.35, lowering her time from the sectional by nearly half a second.
“I am pretty happy with the swim,” Stieber said. “I went another best time and reset the record, so it was good.”
Her time was good for 30th overall in the event.
“It’s a lot of fun to be able to swim here (at state),” Stieber said. “It is pretty challenging and nerve wracking, especially being the only one here from WeBo. But overall it was a good experience.”
Stieber missed the post-season last year because of injury and said her goals this year were to break some records and make it to state – both of which she accomplished.
