For Jasper, Cole Erny and Mitch Mehringer both earned top seeds in their individual events. Erny’s mark of 5:14.07 in the 500 freestyle was more than nine seconds better than any other swimmer, while Mehringer powered to the top time in the 100 breaststroke (1:06.71).
Erny and Mehringer also teamed with Alec Vennekotter and Ben Nolan to log the top time in the 400 freestyle relay. The Wildcats finished in 3:37.28, nipping Vincennes Lincoln by 22 hundredths of a second.
Lucas Schulthies established the top-seeded time in the 50 freestyle, touching the wall in 22.20 — more than a second better than the runner-up.
The sectional will conclude Saturday at Jasper, with the diving prelimiaries set for 10 a.m. and the consolation and finals in all events slated for 2 p.m.
