— Jennah Haney doesn’t need any extra motivation when it comes to swimming.

The Milton High super sophomore uses simple but effective logic—“I hate to lose.”


Haney broke two more school records Friday night while retaining her title in the 100-yard breaststroke as part of the WIAA Division 2 girls state swimming and diving meet at a steamy UW Natatorium.


After trailing for the first 75 yards of the 100 breaststroke, Haney used an explosive kick the last 25 yards to win in a school-record time of 1 minute, 6.05 seconds. She added a third-place finish in the 200 individual medley and ended the evening by helping the Red Hawks finish seventh in the 400 freestyle relay.


Haney said where she finished Friday wasn’t as important as the times she posted.


“It’s always nice to win, but as long as I feel like I swam my best, that’s more important,” she said.


Haney did more than her best in the 100 breaststroke. She was in the middle of the pack halfway through the race and was still in fourth after the final turn. A stunning final 25 yards enabled her to nip Sturgeon Bay’s Alexa Statz at the wall.


“I was kind of aware of where the other girls were next to me, but there was no way I was going to let them get ahead of me. I don’t usually start out in first, but I like to save myself for the back half. That’s when I can catch up.”


Milton senior Jennifer Schober capped off an impressive career with a fourth-place finish in the 200 individual medley, fifth place in the 100 backstroke and as a member of both relay teams.


Schober saved her best for last. After being seeded seventh in the 100 backstroke, she moved up two spots to finish fifth. She touched the wall in 1:00.08, while Grafton sophomore Sadie Nennig won with a time of 57.25.


After Milton finished a disappointing eighth in the first event of the night—the 200 medley relay—Schober used that race as motivation.


“I’m pretty happy because I was able to medal in my last high school meet,” Schober said. “Any time you swim and get your best times, you have to be happy.


“I felt like I swam my best, and that’s what matters. Plus, I got a chance to get on the medal stand with Jennah.”


Milton’s Hailey Foss finished 11th in the 500 freestyle, while Whitewater’s Megan Theune was ninth in the 50 freestyle, and Delavan-Darien’s Emily McClellan was 13th in the 100 breaststroke.


Fort Atkinson’s 200 freestyle relay team of Meghann Green, Abbey Spata, Hilary Hancy and Mackenzie Foerster finished 12th with a 1:43.77 time.


New Berlin West’s Beckie Thompson made the biggest splash on the night. The senior broke state records in the 50 and 100 freestyle with winning times of 23.21 and 50.1, respectively.


DeForest won the team title with 196 points, while Milton was 11th with 111.
