Claire Koeppel has had a banner senior season for the Lake Geneva Badger co-op swim team.

Entering the WIAA Division 1 sectional swimming and diving competition Nov. 3 at Greenfield, Koeppel already produced a stellar season in the Southern Lakes Conference, where she notched more than a dozen individual victories along with a title in the 200-yard freestyle event.

Koeppel, who finished second in the 500-yard freestyle at the conference meet, also was a member of the conference champion 400-meter freestyle relay team.

Like her SLC appearance, she captured two titles at the Nov. 3 sectional, this time in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle events to punch her ticket to the state meet held Saturday at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Natatorium.

With her sectional titles, Koeppel, of Westosha Central, became the second Badger co-op swimmer to win an individual event in as many seasons.

Last year, Big Foot representative Grace Gillingham advanced to the state meet in the 100 breaststroke.
