H.S. SWIMMING: Local swimmers qualify for State championships

RICHMOND — Swimmers from all four local swim teams had strong showings at the Region 5 Swim Championships over the weekend in Barbourville.

Two Madison Central swimmers led the way, bringing home regional titles during the competition.

Morgan Lakes won both the 500 Free and the 200 IM, while Chase Baldwin claimed first place in the 100 Back.

The wins earned the two automatic berths in the state championships that take place Feb. 22 and 23 at the University of Louisville.

The top two in each event earn automatic berths, while the next 10 times in each event are considered for at-large entries in the state meet.

The 22 fastest times from among the at-large entries from all regions also qualify for the state meet.

Preliminary heats for each event were held on Friday. The top eight finishers in each event moved on to the championship finals held on Saturday, while the swimmers who finished in spots 9-16 swam in the consolation finals on Saturday.
