After six (6) previous Division II State Championship for the girls and four (4) previous championships for the Boys, it was Seton’s 6th time as VISAA Division II State Championship Runner-Up

Our Runner-up finish came largely on the strength of our relays, but we also scored significantly in several individual events.  Congratulations to Seton’s Individual State Finalists:

  • Connor Koehr (SO) – 1st in Diving
  • Ariana Aldeguer (8) – 5th in 500 Free and 7th in 200 IM
  • Mick Fioramonti (JR) – 6th in Diving
  • Jacob Oswald (JR) – 10th in Diving
  • Gus Kohlhaas (JR) – 11th in Diving
  • Rose Waldron (JR) – 13th in Diving
  • Max Gonzalez (JR) – would have been 13th if Seton was allowed to score more than four (4) divers.
  • Michael Brox (JR) – 15th in 50 Free
  • Clara Condon (SO) – 16th in 100 Fly

The State Champions were:

  • Girls Overall – Collegiate School
  • Girls Division II – Cape Henry Collegiate (12th overall)
  • Boys Overall – St. Christopher’s School
  • Boys Division II – The Covenant School (9th overall)

The Girls Division II State Championship came down to the final relay where Cape Henry Collegiate’s 6th place finish over our 11th place finish gave them 26-points versus our 12-points, more than enough for their final 9-point margin of victory.

The Boys Division II State Championship also came down to the Final Relay where Seton’s 10th place finish was not enough to overcome Covenant’s 7th and Immanuel Christian’s 6th.
