Girls Swimming: Mayo places 10th at state meet
MINNEAPOLIS — Mayo achieved its goal on Wednesday during the finals of the Class AA state swimming and diving meet.
The Spartans were hoping for a top-10 state finish and that's exactly where they finished, 10th.
Wayzata was the state team champion with 275 points. Minnetonka was the runner-up with 232 points and Edina was third with 221.
Mayo had 97 points, just one point out of ninth.
"That's really exciting," Mayo junior Michelle Campeau said. "That was definitely our goal."
"I was happy with all the girls," Mayo junior Hannah Baratz said.
John Marshall placed 22nd in the state with 22.5 points and Century, based on diver Andrianna Jacobs' second-place finish, had 17 points to place 24th.
Jacobs earned All-State status for her lofty finish. Everyone with a top-eight finish earned All-State honors. It was the first All-State finish for Jacobs, who was competing in the state diving meet for the third straight year.
"It feels great," Jacobs said. "I want to thank my coach (Greg Andrews) and my parents."
Campeau earned All-State honors in three events: the 200 freestyle (seventh), 500 freestyle (eighth) and as part of the 200 freestyle relay team (eighth) with Baratz, Olivia Cook and Shavonne Chen.
Baratz (fifth, 50 freestyle) and Cook (eighth, 100 butterfly) also earned individual All-State honors for Mayo.
Taylor Bass (tied for fifth, 100 freestyle) was All-State for John Marshall.
