A Parkview Middle School pool record fell earlier this month. Roseville Area High School freshman Michelle Schlossmacher Smith recorded the highest diving score in the history of the pool at a meet on Sept. 4.
Irondale High School junior Jacob Wielinski was his team’s lone entrant at last weekend’s state swimming and diving meet and he made the most of his time in the spotlight.
Wielinski advanced to the finals in both of his events and wound up climbing fairly high on the medals stand on Saturday evening at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.
The Mounds View High School boys swimming and diving team earned seven entries in this week’s state meet and Alec Martini and Sasha Safonov had hands in more than half.
Martini and Safonov, both seniors, qualified for state in four events each at Saturday’s Section 5AA meet at Minnetonka East Middle School. Both will swim two solo events and two relays.
The Roseville Area High School boys swimming and diving team claimed three entries into this week’s Class AA state meet. The Raider swimmers clinched their state berths at last weekend’s Section 5AA meet at Minnetonka East Middle School.
Meet victories have been hard to come by for the Mounds View High School boys swimming and diving team so far this season. The Mustangs dropped their first three Suburban East Conference dual meets but broke into the win column last week.
Mounds View notched victory No. 1 by outscoring Cretin-Derham Hall 105-78 at the recently-renovated Chippewa Middle School pool. The Mustangs won 10 of the 12 events to pick up the victory.
