At the IHSA State finals, the boys finished off their season strong, with senior Michael Petro advancing past the preliminaries into finals.

Petro finished off his final season strong with two top ten finishes in the finals in both of his individual events. In the 200 IM, he finished with a 1:51.38 placing seventh, and in the 100 fly, he finished in 49.19 placing seventh as well.

“This wasn’t the finish I was hoping for, but I will most certainly take it. I will take this and learn from it for my future swim career,” Petro said.

Petro along with sophomore Gavin Hill, junior Jack Blumenfield, and freshman Ethan Marunde swam in the 400 freestyle relay. They finished in the preliminary round with a time of 3:15.01 which put them 21 in state.

”Our goal this season was to advance a relay to state and we did that. I could not be more proud of these boys this season and I can’t wait to see what they do next year,” Petro said.

Hill also swam the 50 freestyle. He finished in the preliminary with a time of 22.08, placing 36.

Junior Nick Nocita represented the divers. He competed at state and finished in the preliminaries with a score of 182.75, placing 30.

The boys finished off their season placing 25 as a team at the state meet.
