MANKATO -- Winona's Issara Schimdt had a record-setting day during the Section 1A diving meet on Thursday.

Schmidt won the section title and her score of 510.10 for 11 dives broke a trio of records. Schmidt set the Section 1A record, the Winona team record and the Mankato East pool record with her point total.

Schmidt won the meet by nearly 150 points. Despite her stellar effort, Schmidt will not get a chance at a state championship as there is no state swimming and diving meet this year due to COVID-19.

The four divers usually earn state berths during the section meet. Winona's Ayanna King also had a strong meet. In her first varsity season, King placed third in the section with 307.85 points.

"It was a great night for our divers," Winona coach Linda Whyte said.
