MINNEAPOLIS — Willmar’s Ava Brogren wrapped up her senior season with a 14th-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke Saturday at the state Class A girls swimming and diving championships.

Brogren finished with a time of 1 minute, 8.95 seconds in the consolation final at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center on the University of Minnesota campus.

Brogren was the only West Central Tribune area swimmer competing Saturday. Willmar had five athletes compete in Class A preliminaries Thursday and Friday. Brogren was the only Cardinal to advance.

Mound-Westonka/Holy Family ninth-grader Annemarie Johnson won the consolation final in 1:07:35 to finish ninth overall in the 100 breaststroke. Melrose’s Hallie Drossel won the event in the championship final with a time of 1:03.64. That was good enough for All-American consideration.

Visitation of Mendota Heights won the Class A team title with 385 points. Hutchinson took second with 254.
