Entries for the State Swim & Dive meet are final. See the meet “psych sheet” which shows entries and seeding by the event.
The hard-luck award goes to Ryan Owens. He was .02 seconds off from swimming in the 100 Fly.
It’s going to be an exciting and FAST MEET!! Looking forward to watching our boys disrupt in some of the events.

State Swim & Dive Stuff No One Tells You About
If your son wants to get a State t-shirt or hoodie, send them with money and encourage them to purchase it as soon as they get to Topeka. Last year, they sold out on the first day. Prices are as follows.
- Short-Sleeve T-Shirt (Navy) – $19
- Long-Sleeve T-Shirt (Graphite Heather) – $22
- Hooded Sweatshirt – $30
- State Programs – $3
- Finals Programs – $3
There is next to nothing around the Topeka-Capitol Federal Natatorium for food or snacks. There is a concession stand at the pool, but lunch options are slim. If you need snacks, I’d suggest packing a few and bringing them in your car.
