Bryan’s Addie Oberlin was eighth in the 100 butterfly (1:03.12).

Fairview’s Emily Rittenhouse-Starbuck was eighth in the 500 freestyle (5:35.89) and will have to wait for the wild card times to be released.

Napoleon’s Kyle Hudson won both the 100 and 200 freestyle, and in the process broke one record. His time of 1:40.81 set a new district record. He won the 100 in 45.43, just missing the Napoleon school record by .02.

Napoleon’s Khalil Tran was eighth in the 200 IM (2:06.17) and Bryan’s Jackson Miller was 10th 50 freestyle (22.49).
