Jackie Cromer Cruises at State Swim Meet

Rock Canyon moved into position to claim its first state title in girls' swimming and diving Friday, leading the way in all three relay races at the preliminary session of the Colorado Class 4A State Championships.

Jaguar teammates Kirsten Milberg and Taylor Curado also set Class 4A records in the 100-yard backstroke and 100 butterfly, respectively. Milberg, a three-time champion in the backstroke, came in at 56.54 seconds to topple the 2003 mark of Niwots Kristen Lahey.

Curado swam the butterfly in 56.36, about a half-second better than Amberle Biedermann of Rampart in 2000.

Lewis-Palmer senior Jackie Cromer came through with the best prelim times in the 100 freestyle (52.66) and the 200 freestyle (1:54.56).

Broomfield senior Kia Dobie blitzed the field in the 200 individual medley at 2:07.57, while Thompson Valley freshman Maggie Varuska shocked the field with the top time in the 50 freestyle at 24.61.

The finals, including diving, will be completed Saturday.
