Arneson, a senior, earned a state berth for the third straight year. Kalk, a sophomore, also competed at state as a freshman. Coley, a senior, advanced to the state meet in the 100-yard butterfly. The diving was held Friday night and the swimming on Saturday.

Arneson finished third with a season-best 377.65 points for 11 dives. Kalk earned fourth with a season-best 352.30. Coley placed third in the butterfly with a time of 1 minute, 1.60 seconds.

Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah students Lauren Boos and younger sister, Meredith, qualified for state as members of the Kiel/EL-G team. Lauren, a senior, advanced in the 50 freestyle after placing fourth in 25.04 seconds. Lauren and Meredith are on the state-qualifying 200 freestyle relay which finished third in 1:42.34.

Each sectional winner automatically qualified for state along with the top 12 performers from all of the sectionals (not including sectional winners). The state meet will be held Friday at the UWMadison Natatorium.

PHS finished fourth in the 14-team meet with 256 points. Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Falls captured second with 290, only six points behind champion Ashwaubenon. Kiel/EL-G took seventh with 164.

“We had some great swims and some disappointments. I think that fourth out of 14 teams was better than expected,” said Panther head coach Dave Coley.

“We swam with everything we had and more but sometimes that is not enough to get to state. Most of our swimmers had never competed before at this level. They were outstanding and I am proud of all of them,” said coach Coley.

“Senior Savannah Arneson had a great night – only 15.5 points separated her from winning the sectional. We had very good diving by all in our sectional,” said PHS diving coach Greg Heberlein.

Heberlein was also very pleased with Kalk, Jovianne Schwibinger and Danielle Tesky. Schwibinger and Tesky finished fifth and sixth, respectively.

The diving champion was Kiel/ EL-G senior Sydney Vian with a score of 393.15.

“Keeley Kuru did a great job in the 500 freestyle and our divers all improved. Katy, Keeley and Gwen Nytes all swam well in the 100 butterfly,” said coach Coley.
