Mayo junior Natalie Boorjian and senior Ava Gustafson both finished in the top eight of the preliminary round of the Class AA girls state swimming and diving finals on Friday and advanced to Saturday's championship round.
The girls swimming and diving state meet was not held a year ago due to COVID. This season the meet returns and Rochester has plenty of Class AA state qualifiers. The event will be held Thursday-Saturday at the University of Minnesota.
Century had swimmers earn state berths in nine of 11 events during the Section 1AA finals on Friday. Mayo had swimmers earn state berths in six events, plus had a diver earn a state berth, while JM had one swimmer advance.
