The Edinboro women’s swim team roster is dotted with Alle-Kiski standouts, and their runs of success have carried over to college.

Senior freestyler Staci Schrecongost (Valley) is off to a blazing start. She picked up a pair of wins (100, 200 freestyle) in dual-meet victories over Tiffin and Lake Erie; won the same events at the Spire Open; and pitched in for two wins at the Westminster Relays.

Teammate Holly Stein (St. Joseph), a sophomore who was an All-American in the 100 breaststroke last season, won that event and the 200 breast at the Spire Open. She also teamed with Schrecongost and freshman Morgan Joseph (Kittanning) to win the 400 medley relay at the Westminster Relays. Stein and Madison Wargo (Apollo-Ridge), a senior, were on the winning 300 backstroke relay.

Stein and Joseph also contributed to the winning 200 medley relay in the win over Lake Erie.
