      Swimming for states

      On Saturday, 181 one kids soaked up the competition for YMCAâ??s swimming invitational. It was the YMCA's spring luau event held at Marquette Senior High School.

      Three different teams competed.

      Coaches say for some kids, itâ??s their last competition of the season.

      Swimmers on Saturday were trying to make a time that would qualify them for state championships.

      "I did not make states," admitted Mollie Kilpela, 11, with the Killer Whales of Marquette. "I dropped a lot of seconds in the events that I wanted to, so I'm very happy."

      Swimmers that do make states will travel to Milwaukee March 21 for championships.
