Section II Division I live blog notes

Here are the notes I uploaded live to the blog during the Section II Division I girls swimming and diving meet at RPI's Robison Pool Nov. 3.

Bethlehem Central was expected to run or swim away with the Division I title, but two local schools are making it interesting.
BC leads with 265 points with Saratoga trailing at 246 and Shen at 203. Shaker is fourth at 187, Guilderland fifth at 138.
It will once again come down to the last race, the 400-freestyle relay.

DI swimming rules state team
The larger school not only have larger teams, but also have depths of talent with speed also.
During Saturday's two-division meet, individuals advance to the state meet by hitting "magic times" or qualifiers for the state meet.
During the early Division II meet, only seven individuals qualified for the state meet. Through three events of the Division I (large school) meet, eight have qualified in the first three events and several more spots are expected to be added during the 1-meter diving competition going on now.

SII Division I meet underway
It:s 5:10 p..m and the Section II Division I girls swimming meet is finally underway.
With the DII meet taking a full 4 1/2 hours, I'm looking at a late night at the RPI pool today.
The place is packed, but not over code Mr. Fire Marshall. That led to this year's separate meets. Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake's Courtney Schwarting was named this year's Section II scholar athlete award winner during the pre-meet festivities.
Ballston Spa's Jillian Ferron did a fantastic job with the National Anthem.
