HASTINGS — Chase Andresen led the Columbus High swimming team Saturday at the Hastings Invite.

The senior had the Discoverers’ top three finishes of the meet.

Andresen was third in the 100-yard freestyle, posting a secondary state-qualifying time of 51.15 seconds, less than a second off an automatic qualifying time. He got another secondary qualifying time in the 200 freestyle relay, teaming with Trey Dallman, Konner Kudron and Said Mendez to finish third in 1 minute, 37.48 seconds.

Andresen was also fourth in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:15, just over a second away from a secondary qualifying time.

Freshman Maddisen Schulz had the top finish for the CHS girls, taking fifth in the 500 freestyle with a time of 6:30.55. Natalia Salazar was sixth in the 100 butterfly in 1:16.25.

Both Columbus squads finished sixth in the team standings. The boys had 110 points while the girls posted 107.5 points.

“It was a tough meet, but the swimmers snuck in some top finishes,” CHS head coach Kari Weihl said.

Norfolk swept the team titles with the girls scoring 294.5 points and the boys recording 262 points.

The Discoverers host the Columbus Relays next Saturday at the Columbus Aquatic Center.
