February 28, 2022
Adelaide McRoberts ♦ Kingsford
Swimming ♦ Sophomore
McRoberts won the third and fourth MHSAA Upper Peninsula Finals championships of her career, this time in the 200-yard individual medley and 50-yard freestyle with times of 2:11.34 and 24.22 seconds, respectively. The 50 time set the UP Finals record, and she went on to best it with a 24.21 split to start the runner-up 200 freestyle relay. She also swam the second leg of the runner-up 200 medley relay as her team finished overall runner-up Saturday at Marquette High School.
The 50 record was her second at the UP Finals, to go with the record-setting 100 butterfly she swam in 58.89 seconds as a freshman – when she also won the 100 backstroke in a time of 59.68 that ranks second in UP Finals history. Her 200 IM time this weekend ranks fourth on that race list.

Performance of the Week: Marquette's Grace Sobczak
February 24, 2023
Grace Sobczak ♦ Marquette
Junior ♦ Swimming
Marquette’s girls swimming & diving team won its second straight and fourth Upper Peninsula Finals championship in five seasons Saturday, and Sobczak led the charge with championships in the 200-yard individual medley (23.42 seconds) and 500 freestyle (5:35.02) and as part of the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays.
The individual championships were the third and fourth Finals titles of Sobczak’s career – she won the 500 for the third time in three tries – and the pair of relay wins raised her Finals count to four total in those races as well. The championship capped an undefeated season for the team. While swimming always has been her primary sport, Sobczak played a variety growing up and runs cross country in the fall.
