Colby and Carly Cahill competed in the State Swim Championships at Springfield College over the weekend.

Carly, a freshman at O’Bryant, swam the 50 freestyle with a time of 27.12. Her seed time was 26.37 going into the event.

Colby, a junior at Latin Academy, swam the 100 Backstroke. She went in with a seed time of 1:07.68 and finished with a time of 1:07.16.

Colby was eight / 100ths of a second from qualifying for states when the sectional swim meets were canceled because of the snow storm.

Originally the MIAA said only the swimmers who qualified for states going into sectionals could swim at states. But then the MIAA reversed course, allowing the sectional qualifiers to swim at states as well.
