STATE CENTRAL: 2012 IHSA Girls Swimming & Diving

Bookmark and Share

The 2012 IHSA Girls Swimming & Diving State Finals are set to take place inside Evanston High School’s William Dobson Burton Aquatic Center on Friday and Saturday, November 16-17. The 2012 state meet marks the 38th annual edition of the state finals and the 15th time that Evanston has served as the host. New Trier looks to capture its third consecutive team state title in 2012, which would be the sixth time in state history that a program went back-to-back-to-back and the second time in school history (1981-1987). 2011 runner-up Fenwick looks to contend for its first-ever state championship again in 2012, as the Friars’ boast 16 competitors entered in 20 events, second only to New Trier’s 21 entries. Lake Forest, 10th in 2011, is not far behind with 19 entries, while St. Ignatius (16), Naperville Central (15), Glenbrook South (14), Stevenson (14) and St. Charles East (14) all have 14 entries or more.

In addition, the inaugural state finals will be held on Saturday for athletes with disabilities. The IHSA offers four events in the program, including the 50-Yard Freestyle, 100-Yard Freestyle, 200-Yard Freestyle and 100-Yard Breaststroke. The seven individuals who qualified at the Sectional level for Saturday’s finals are Fenwick’s Mary Kate Callahan (all events), Waubonsie Valley’s Alyssa Gialmas (all), Springfield Southeastern’s Jordan Leete (50), Glenbrook North’s Phoebe Mejia (all), Lake Forest’s Nina Nissly (50, 100f, 200), Richwoods’ Samantha Peters (50, 100f) and Oak Lawn’s Smantha Smolka (50, 100f).

The prelims and finals of every event will be webcast live with full video and audio free of charge on IHSA.tv.
