The Missouri high school girls state swimming and diving championships will take place Friday and Saturday at the City of St. Peters Rec-Plex in St. Peters, Mo. 495 athletes from 72 schools will compete in the two-day event. The swimming prelims will begin Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. after the competitors complete their morning workouts. The diving competition will start on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. with the finals for swimming starting at 3 p.m.
Unique to swimming and diving, there is no separation of classes…all schools compete against each other. Last year, Glendale took the team championship edging out Marquette.
1 Glendale 210
2 Marquette 202
3 Park Hill South 183
4 Kirkwood 148.5
5 Parkway West 140
Glendale and Marquette qualified 17 and 16 competitors respectively with Notre Dame di Sion and St. Joseph’s Academy qualifying the largest number of competitors at 19.
