(WAOW) - Colby/Abby swimmer Morgan Huber has done some impressive things in her career, but with another trip to the state swim meet in her future, the Hornets senior has reached another milestone.

"It's a long journey from Colby to Madison, but Morgan Huber knows the trip quite well. That's because for the fourth straight season, the Hornets' senior will make the trek to the Wisconsin natatorium to compete in the 100 breaststroke at the girls state swim meet.

"I've been there three years so I know the pool, I know how it feels and it never gets old, so I'm really excited to go back," Huber said.

"Morgan's been a great leader in the pool," Colby/Abby head coach Monica Tesmer said. "The hard work that she does, our dry land work, our work before practices. She's always there cheering on the ones that are having a hard time making it through to encourage them not to give up and to keep going."

Huber made her mark immediately as a freshman, setting the school record in the 100 breaststroke, a record she's continuously broken, including a new personal best in 1 minute, 8 seconds during last weekend's sectional final in Stevens Point.

"I would love to see it drop more," Tesmer said. "Just to have her name up on the board one more time that would be another accomplishment."

"I'm hoping to drop that time even more," Huber said. "My goal is to make podium, top six, so hopefully I can get in that top six."
