Two dips in the pool

Due to the size of the Section II boys swimming and diving championship pool, pun intended, the meet was divided into two sections along with competing at two different sites.

The small school division dives in (I'm full of puns today) at 10 a.m. at Amsterdam and the large schools dip their toes in at 2 p.m. at Niskayuna.

Diving was already completed Thursday at Ballston Spa High School with all 11 dives being completed and allowing for a shorter day on Saturday at both locations.

So with that said, I'm on the road to cover both, get some photos and thankfully, Dr. Reda has agreed to tag along and type in the results as we go along.

God bless her smart little fingers and iBook G4.

There shouldn't be too many surprises at either meet with Burnt Hills favored in the small meet and Shenendehowa in the large meet.

The quest for most of the aquamen (get used to this one!) will be swimming fast enough to earn a spot on the Section II state team.

Already two Burnt Hills swimmers earned spots on the squad during Friday's prelims and 11 Shen swimmers, Saratoga's Kevin Murphy and the Plainsmen 400-freestyle relay foursome have reserved seats on the state meet-bound bus. The large school division has exploded with 33 other individual qualifiers and seven relays.

The state qualifying time is established from the average time of the previous year's state final time in each event.

Section II may need to get a bigger bus.
