Owatonna freshman Logan Norrid set a pair of school records and qualified for the state swimming meet in each event during the Section 1AA meet at the Rec Center in Rochester. It's Norrid's second straight trip to state in one of the events.
Norrid set the Owatonna school mark in the 100 butterfly with a time of 57.68 seconds which was good for a section championship. She also qualified for the 100 fly in 2018 and finished 12th in the state.
