Following another exciting Sectional Championship Meet, the Mt. Vernon Girls’ Swim Team will be well represented at the State Meet this Friday in Indianapolis! Pearl Muensterman finished 2nd in the 50 Free but qualified with a 23.77 which was below the state “cut” time propelling her to the championship this weekend. Jamie won the 500 m in an exciting 5:13 which was right at 2 seconds faster than the runner-up. Her win also made her an automatic qualifier for Friday’s prelims. The 200 Free Relay finished 3rd in one of the most exciting races of the day last Saturday. However, all 3 of the top teams were under the state “cut” time and advanced to this Friday’s prelims.
