Maddy Brouyette

Rochester junior Maddy Brouyette scored 287.65 points and finished third in a field of 12 divers at the Warsaw sectional Saturday.

By virtue of her third-place finish, she qualified for the girls diving regional at Valparaiso High School Tuesday. Start time is 6 p.m. Eastern.

The top four divers at the sectional qualify for the diving regional. The top eight at the diving regional qualify for the IHSAA state finals. Diving at the state finals begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis.

Brouyette was one of three Rochester divers who competed. All three were competing in their first sectional. Kendyll Bradley was seventh with 244.45 points, and Ava Thomas was ninth with 208.75 points.

Among other area divers, Tippecanoe Valley juniors Ella Myers and Lydia Miller finished fifth and sixth, respectively. Myers finished 1.95 points behind Plymouth’s Madi Hauptmann for the final regional spot.

Pioneer’s Lane Hood and Gracie Helm finished 11th and 12th, respectively. Hood is a sophomore, and Clem is a freshman.

Culver Academy’s Claire Feick won the title with 475.05 points

Swimming preliminaries

Pioneer sophomore Chloe Chan qualified second in the 100 breaststroke at the Warsaw sectional preliminaries Saturday and has the best performance in the preliminaries by ranking of any RTC area swimmer.

Columbia City’s Emma Johnson was the top qualifier in 1:11.81 while Chan qualified in 1:13.89.

The sectional champion, plus those who meet a difficult state qualifying time, receive an automatic berth to the state finals, which begin at 6 p.m. Friday. The state qualifying time in the breaststroke is 1:05.63.

Two area swimmers qualified for the finals in multiple events – Rochester senior Elena Bode and Valley sophomore Kendall Craig.

Bode qualified sixth in the 100 freestyle in 59.11 seconds and fifth in the 100 breaststroke in 1:16.61. Bode will also swim in the finals of both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays.

Molly Vance-Gruss, Bella Riffle and Kendyll Bradley will join her in the 200 medley relay, and Bradley, Riffle and Melody Hisey will join her in the 200 freestyle relay.

Rochester’s 400 freestyle relay, which consists of Hisey, Lola Brady, Araceli Ochoa and Molly Vance-Gruss, also qualified for the finals.

Craig qualified eighth in the 200 freestyle in 2:14.74 and seventh in the 500 freestyle in 6:03.66. She also will join Olivia Wilson, Maddie Woodward and Makena Smith in the 400 freestyle relay, which qualified for the finals.

Smith, a junior, also qualified eighth in the 100 breaststroke in 1:19.68. It marks the second straight year she has qualified for the finals in the breaststroke. She qualified for the consolation round in the breaststroke in 2020.

In addition to Chloe Chan, the other Pioneer swimmer to reach a final was senior Emily Chan, who qualified eighth in the 100 freestyle in 1:00.77.

Pioneer’s 400 freestyle relay team also advanced to the finals. That team consists of Mackenzie Robinson, Anna Shewalter, Emily Chan and Chloe Chan.

The sectional preliminaries were postponed from Thursday to Friday and again from Friday to Saturday afternoon due to inclement weather.

The finals were postponed from Saturday afternoon to Monday night.

Warsaw is the defending sectional champion and has won the sectional four of the last five years.
