The Sturgeon Bay Co-op boys swimming team placed 12th at the Division 2 state meet on Friday.
The Clippers finished with 83 points. Edgewood won its second consecutive state title with 293 points and Cedarburg was runner up with 265.
Senior Brock Aune finished a stellar career by having a hand in 73 of the Clippers’ points. Aune placed third in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of :57.86, just 1.31 seconds behind winner Ben Ramminger from DeForest. Aune took 6th in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of :22.17. Less than a second separated the top six places.
Aune teamed up with Luke Bousley, Jacob Norton and Ethan Almstadt to place 8th in the 200-yard freestyle relay with a time of 1:30.36. Aune, Norton, Connor Thompson and Almstadt placed 8th in the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:41.45.
“Overall though this season has been more about the team than myself,” Aune said. “We’ve accomplished some huge things that this team hasn’t done in years. I think we’re finally starting to build this program to a huge threat on the state level, and I’m glad to be part of this process.”
Sophomore Jacob Norton turned in a time of 1:01.85 to place 11th in the 100-yard breaststroke. Sophomore Drew Rass came in 13th place with a time of 1:02.45.
