Mayo tops tough medley relay group
The three Rochester public schools had just one first-place finish in the preliminaries of the Section One swimming and diving meet Wednesday at the Rochester Recreation Center.
The Rochester Mayo 200 medley relay team of Jenny Daniels, Kaylyn Wendroth, Erin Caflisch and Kalene Wileman was first in a time of 1:54.19.
The top four 200 medley relay teams in the prelims swam times under 1:55, including third-place JM. State qualifying time is 1:55.71.
While first place is good, the top eight qualify for Friday’s championship round, and Rochester schools have lots of swimmers there. The top two swimmers and top four divers Friday will advance to the state meet.
John Marshall’s Brianna Fujan was second in the 200 IM and second in the 100 butterfly.
Erin Caflisch of Mayo was second in the 100 freestyle. Mary Wood of John Marshall was third.
Kaylyn Wendroth of Mayo was second in the 100 breaststroke.
John Marshall’s 400 freestyle relay team of Claire Aksamit, Paige Cook, Julia Dvorak and Brianna Fujan was second, less than one second behind the winning team from Farmington.
Friday’s Section One finals starts at 6 p.m. at the Rec Center pool.
