The Austin 200-yard freestyle relay team was about as close as it could be to making it to the consolation finals, but it was still short at the Class ‘A’ swimming preliminaries at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center Tuesday.
The team of Merideth Fritz, Heather Johnson, Maddie Kinney and Mikayla Finney finished in 17th and was one spot from advancing to Wednesday’s finals. The team finished with a time of 1:42.37, which wasn’t enough to edge out a team from St. Peter that finished in 1:42.29.
Austin diver Autumn Laury will compete in Wednesday’s finals, which begin at noon in the Aquatic Center, as she is currently in eighth place headed into the final round.
