A few more swimmers will join Jacob Norton at this weekend's state swim meet in Waukesha.
Norton punched his ticket to the state meet by winning the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of just over 1:01. Sectional winners automatically clinched state berth, but other swimmers had to wait to find out if the times they posted last Saturday were enough to make the meet as well.
Other state qualifiers include:
- 200-yard medley relay
- 200-yard individual medley- Ethan Almstadt, Luke Bousley
- 50-yard freestyle- Jacob Northon
- 100-yard freestyle- Luke Bousley
- 200-yard freestyle relay
- 100-yard breaststroke- Drew Rass along with Norton
The state meet begins at the Waukesha South High School Natatorium beginning at 6 p.m.

Ethan Almstadt and Luke Bousley will be competing in the 200 IM with personal best times to qualify.
Jacob Norton will be swimming in lane 3 of heat 1 in the 50 Free and Luke Bousley will be in lane 6 heat 1 of the 100 Free.
The teams strong performance in the 200 Free Relay has them as the 4th seed in Waukesha on Friday night.
Also continuing the tradition of excellent breaststroke swimming from Door County(thanks Mike) the team will have 2 swimmers in the A final heat in Waukesha with Jacob Norton seeded 4th and Drew Rass seeded 8th heading into the State Meet.
