Boys swimming: Hurricanes' Benz finishes 22nd in diving at state meet

Feb. 21, 2012

The Wauwatosa Hurricanes' only state representative at the WIAA State Boys Swimming & Diving Meet on Saturday at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Natatorium didn't make it to the semifinals.

Junior Tony Benz finished 22nd in the preliminaries with a score of 140.95.

"I felt Tony did very well," Hurricanes coach Heidi Goetsch said. "I am very proud of him. He said at the end of last year's season that his goal was to make it to state.

"Since then he has been working towards that goal and succeeded. Next year his goal is to break our school record and place at state."

Junior Andrew Suchla of Racine Park won the state title with 455.40 points.
