County has one swimmer in finals


It was a quiet night for Johnson County teams at Friday’s preliminary heats of the IHSAA Girls Swimming and Diving State Finals at the IU Natatorium on the IUPUI campus.

Center Grove’s Emily Saugstad was the only local swimmer to advance to one of today’s championship races. The freshman qualified for the finals in the 100-meter freestyle with a time of 51.28 seconds, just over half a second off the best time in preliminaries.

Saugstad barely missed advancing in the 50 free, as well, finishing 0.1 seconds behind the last qualifier. She will swim in the consolation heat.

Center Grove’s 200 medley, 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relays also will swim in consolation heats.
