The Schultz sisters aren't the only family members to find success for the Bluejays.
Cousins Erin and Trinity Kanitz swam on the 400-yard freestyle relay team with the Schultz sisters and placed second at sectionals.
"We kind of had a feeling that we had a possibility if we all worked really hard out of every flip turn," Trinity Kanitz said.
All five Merrill state qualifiers received a silver cap from their coaches, a reminder of a hard-fought sectionals victory.
"Everyone was just screaming at the end when we found out we won," Erin Kanitz said.
It's the joy of sharing a victory with the team and with family.
The Bluejays have entrants in seven of 12 events during Friday's state meet in Madison.
Merrill will bring their entire team down on a bus to support everyone who qualified.
