Redskins earn at-large bids to state

Sports Editor

All three relay teams for the Wapakoneta Redskins boys swimming team will be competing at state, while one relay team for the Redskins girls team is also headed to state.

At-large qualifiers were determined after the conclusion of all of the districts meets throughout the state, with the 16 best entries remaining besides the two automatic qualifiers for each district meet.

Ranking 18th out of 24 state entries, the boys' 200-yard freestyle quartet of Ryan Schneider, Michael Zwez, Kurt Schlenker and Joey Metzger earned an at-large berth and will join the 200 medley and the 400 free relays, which clinched automatic bids in Division II on Friday.

The girls' 200 medley relay team earned the 16th and final at-large berth, as Jordyn Law, Mya Hager, Sierra Sammons and Alex Gesler will be the lone state qualifiers for the Redskins in the girls Division II meet.
