The Wauwatosa Swordfish swimming club was represented by 14-year-old Bridget Thuli at the Wisconsin 13 and over Long Course State Championship Meet from Aug. 4-7 at the Rec Plex in Pleasant Prairie.

Thuli was the only member of the Swordfish to qualify for the 13 and over state meet. She swam a 3:05.93 in the 200-meter breaststroke, dropping almost two seconds off her time. She dropped over a second off her 100-meter breaststroke time to finish in 1:24.93 and break a club record that stood for six years. She swam the 200-meter individual medley in a time of 2:49.98.

Thuli will compete this fall on the swimming and diving team at Wauwatosa West High School.

The Swordfish had two qualifiers representing Wisconsin at the Mega Zones Meet at the Natatorium at Indiana University.

Lauren Malinowski (12 years old) competed in the 50-meter and 100-meter butterfly and 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle.

Maddie Bartz (12) competed in the 50-meter backstroke.
