Five Brookfield Central swimmers qualify for state

Nov. 5, 2012

Brookfield Central qualified five swimmers in four events Saturday - two individuals and two relays - at the WIAA Sectional at Waukesha South/Mukwonago.

Lancers coach William Twitchell was not surprised by who qualified.

"The sectional meet always leaves you a bit unrequited unless you qualify all 18 entries," he said. "The athletes that should have qualified did.

"We are excited to see where these swims can score next weekend. In the end, whether you are the goose or the gravy, it is still Christmas."

You can find sophomore Nikki Wahlgren all over the Lancers highlight sheet, as she qualified in an individual event and both relay teams.

She finished seventh in the 100-yard butterfly in 59.76 seconds and junior Leah Lee was fourth in the 100 breaststroke in 1 minute, 8.67 seconds and will be Central's two individual races.

Wahlgren then anchored both relays.

On the 200 freestyle relay she teamed with three freshmen Claire Flatley, Lauren Flatley and Erin Locante, finishing fourth (1:41.23).

All four teamed up again to take fourth in the 400 free relay in 3:41.23.
