MINNEAPOLIS — Dassel-Cokato/Litchfield’s Logan Christopherson wrapped up his freshman season in the state’s best pool Feb 28, when he dove in for the Class A State Swimming and Diving Championships at the UofM Aquatic Center.

Christopherson had a long wait before his turn arrived in the 100-yard breaststroke, his only event.

He swam in lane one in the third of three heats. When everything was tallied, Christopherson’s time of 1:03.82 put him in 19th place.

That was not good enough to earn Christopherson a spot at Saturday’s finals and consolation heats. The top 16 moved on.

The breaststroke was fast at the preliminary swim as three all-American times were reached.

Minnehaha Academy’s Andrew Karpenko won the prelims with the time of 54.26 seconds. On his heels were Austin’s Logan Kelly (55.31) and Breck/Blake’s James Pan (55.52).

Karpenko bettered his preliminary time with a 54.22 Saturday to win the state championship.
