Two members of the Roseville Area High School girls swimming and diving team will represent the school at this week’s Class AA state meet. Both Raiders qualified for state by finishing second in their respective events.

Junior Lauren Kacmarynski is set to compete at state in the 100-yard freestyle after her runner-up performance at the Section 4AA meet on Nov. 9.

Her time of 54.13 seconds is the second-fastest time in school history, behind only Treasa Ring’s 53.68 set in 2006. Kacmarynski is also second all time at Roseville in the 50-yard freestyle, behind only Ring again.

Roseville’s second state entrant is eighth-grader Michelle Schlossmacher-Smith, who placed second in the diving competition at sections. Her 11-dive score of 381.8 points is Roseville’s second-highest ever. Mary Ahlin holds the school record of 410.1 points, which was set in 1995.

In addition to its two state entrants, Roseville had four other section entries place in the top five. Kacmarysnki teamed up Molly Quinlan, SungMoon Lim and Courtney Gastecki to finish third in the 200-yard freestyle relay. Their time of 1:42.45 is the third-fastest time in school history.

The quartet of Quinlan, Lim, Gastecki and Kacmarynski also combined to swim the 400-yard freestyle relay and finish fourth. Their time of 3:46.08 moves them into fifth place on Roseville’s all-time list.

Adrianna Schlossmacher-Smith, the twin sister of Michelle, finished fifth in the diving competition.

In the 200-yard medley relay, Lim, Jamie Gorski, Megan Eklund and Quinlan finished fifth.

As a team, Roseville took fourth place in the Section 4AA standings. Stillwater was the runaway section champion.

The Class AA state meet runs Nov. 18-20 at the University of Minnesota’s Aquatic Center.
