The Milford swim teams, both men and women, battled a tough loss against Caesar Rodney at the Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club on January 30. Now, the regular season draws near with the Henlopen Conference Championship meet just around the corner.

Conferences, which includes MHS and eight other downstate teams (Cape Henlopen, Caesar Rodney, Dover, Indian River, Lake Forest, Seaford, Sussex Central and Sussex Tech), will be taking place on February 8, beginning at 10 am at Lake Forest High School.

“With the season ending, I know that we are ready for conferences, and the swimmers will do really well,” stated Ellen Gorrin, MHS head coach. “As a coaching staff, we have specific goals that we have for conferences, and we cannot wait to see how they will be met.”

For senior Alyson Sanders, this conference meet will be her final Henlopen competition of her four-year tenure as an MHS swimmer.

“I have been on multiple sports teams, but the swim team has been by far the greatest family,” exclaimed Sanders. “That is hands down what I will miss the most.”

Although the Buccaneers suffered a loss, they celebrated seven swimmers by recognizing them in Milford’s Senior Night.

Besides Sanders, seniors Even Becker, Morgan Lorah, Maxie Petzold, Cara Molesi, Alyson Parola, and Crystal Lankford, each received a bouquet of roses and a handwritten letter from the coaching staff at the team’s Senior Night versus Caesar Rodney. However, the night was bittersweet as both teams fell to the Riders.

Despite winning eight of the 11 events, the women lost by only four points, 87-83. Meanwhile, the men took a hard loss as the Riders swept each event for a 119-47.

Due to inclement weather earlier in the season, MHS will be making up its final regular-season meet at the Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club against Sussex Tech on Thursday, February 6.
