PHS, which posted several season and personal-best times, advanced all three of its relays and sophomore diver Savannah Arneson to the state meet Friday at UWMadison’s Natatorium. Grafton, the reigning D-2 state champion, won the sectional with 394 points, followed by PHS with 313.

The Panthers’ relays included: 200-yard medley – seniors Jacqueline Snow, Maddy Schmitt and Maddie Strutz and junior Kayla Lentz; 200 freestyle – juniors Anna Theisen and Nichole Bartzen, freshman Katy Coley and Strutz; and the 400 freestyle – Coley, Snow, Theisen and Strutz.

The medley relay finished third with a season-best 1 minute, 56.58 seconds. The 200 freestyle relay earned third in a season-low 1:43.98. The 400 freestyle unit placed second and was clocked in a season-best 3:47.60.

Arneson captured second in the 11-dive event with a score of 311.15 points. The diving was held Friday night at Neenah and the swimming took place at the PHS pool.

The winners in each sectional event and the top-12 performances among all sectionals (excluding winners) qualify for the state meet.

“I was very pleased. The girls swam very well and stepped up,” said Panther head coach Mike Slagle.

“Another week of rest really helped the girls. We had a lot of season and personal bests. I’m happy to get three relays and a diver to state. The relays really pulled together.”

Slagle said most of the girls in the relays had their personal-best times.

Placing third in the meet was Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Falls with 259 points, followed by Kiel/Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah at 198. Freshman Jenna Silvestri, a Falls student, won the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke to advance to state in both events.

Sophomore Lauren Boos, an Elkhart student, anchored the Kiel/ Elkhart 200 and 400 freestyle relays which both finished sixth.
