    Erdman got first in the 200 free and 50 breastoke, a second in 200 individual medley and a third in 400 free.

    "She just turned 11 this summer and qualified in six strokes, which is the max you can swim in this meet," explained coach Ken Stromberg. "Jaden is 12 years old sitting at the top of his age group and making him one of the top swimmers in that group."
    Lubarski also qualified for the maximum event and they are: 100 free, 50 free, 50 breast, 50 back, 200 free and 50 back.
    "He has a chance to qualify for zone which is the next step up in swimming," coach Stromberg pointed out. "That meet will be in Topeka, Kan. on August 2-5.
