HASTINGS — In a meet decided on the final event, Mayo captured the Section One, Class AA True Team meet in boys swimming and diving on Saturday.

As a result the Spartans have qualified for the Class AA True Team State Meet on Jan. 24.

Century held a one-point lead in the six-team meet heading into the final event, the 400 freestyle relay.

Mayo had relays that placed fifth, ninth, 11th and 12th in the 400 freestyle relay as the Spartans rallied to win with 887 points. Hastings was second overall with 857 points and Century slipped to third with 836 points.

"True Team favors large teams by concept and Century just didn't have the depth to enter four relays in the last event as allowed," Century coach Linda Freeman said.


Century had won both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay events. The Panthers also received individual wins from Alex Kofler in both the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, Jason Tri in the 200 IM and Will Cima in the 100 butterfly. Kopler and Tri were also on both winning relays while Cima was on the winning medley relay.

Mayo did not have any individual winners.

John Marshall chose not to compete in the meet.
