STEVENS POINT - The Northwoods will be well represented at the state swim meet next weekend.
11 of 12 events will have swimmers from Merrill, Tomahawk, Medford and Rhinelander.
Tons of girls broke school records at the sectional meet on Saturday.
The Medford Raiders broke four of them to qualify for state in all four events.
Head coach Betsy Berends says the fall months are usually the teams toughest time, but not this year.
"October is always hard on them and they just came out and set four school records," Berends said. We got some second place finishes. We got a lot of hopes coming in to state. It's amazing."
Raider Senior Aubrey Buskerud qualified in the 200 yard individual medley for the first time in her high school career.
She said she wanted nothing more than getting a chance to compete in Madison.
"It means so much. I've worked so hard over the past four years and the dedication and focusing. It all just pays off and it feels so good just to know that," Buskerud said.
The Division Two meet will be this Friday at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium.
