Monfils Qualifies for State in Three Events

Door County United (DCU) sophomore boys swimmer Jack Monfils has qualified for the WIAA state swimming meet in three events following Saturday’s Division 2 sectional at Ashwaubenon.

Monfils won the sectional title in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:00.83), placed second in the 200 individual medley (2:00.58) and joined Ezra Linnan, Luke Filar and Logan Filar to finish third in the 200 medley relay (1:45.7).

Sectional champions automatically qualified for state, while the 12 next fastest individuals/relay teams, not including the champions, in all the Division 2 sectionals combined also qualified.

In the Feb. 16 Division 2 state championships at Waukesha South High School, Monfils will be seeded fifth in the 100 breaststroke and eighth in the 200 individual medley. DCU’s 200 medley relay received a No. 14 seed.

DCU, which placed seventh at the Ashwaubenon sectional out of 10 teams with 155 points, had five other top-eight finishes in events the team didn’t qualify for state. 

Individually, Linnan placed sixth in the 100 backstroke (1:00.04), Logan Filar finished seventh in the 50 freestyle (23.73) and eighth in the 100 freestyle (51.83), and George Atwell came in eighth in the 200 freestyle (2:02.25).

Logan Filar, Linnan, Luke Filar and Monfils placed seventh in the 200 freestyle relay (1:35.48).
