The Centre/Marion/Hillsboro Coop Girls Swim team sent several members to the 2A state swim meet in Topeka over the weekend where the girls came back with lots of hardware.

Hillsboro freshman Lauryn Vogt did well in preliminaries on Friday and qualified to move on to the finals on Saturday where she took 3rd place in the 100M butterfly with a time of 58.15. She took 1st place in the 50 Freestyle with a time of 23.92.

“Lauryn comes away a State Champion in the 50 free not only winning state but also being under a 24 for the first time. She also had a fast turn around between the 50 free and the 100 fly but she was still able to pull off a 3rd place finish,” said Magee.

Centre’s Olivia Carlson took 5th in girls 1m diving with a final score of 363.20.

Magee said, “Olivia has also come a long way since the start of the season— improving on the small things and finished 5th this year.”

Hillsboro’s Ainsely Duell (senior), Talia Jost (freshman), Tanner Plett (senior) and Lauryn Vogt (freshman)competed in two relays and one fifth place in the 200 freestyle relay.

“I am so incredibly proud of all these athletes. They really put in the work and it showed this weekend. Our two seniors (Tanner and Ainsley) ended their high school careers on the podium and our freshman (Lauryn and Talia) got a taste of it for next year,” said Coach MacKenzie Magee.

Magee went on to say, “I am so excited to see what next season brings us. Lauryn, Talia, Violet, Oliva and Cadence will be back next year and got to experience state this year which will bring great experience to the team.”
