Prep Swimming: O-G’s Kleman, Samuelson qualify for state meet

CLEVELAND — Ottawa-Glandorf’s Luke Kleman and Kathryn Samuelson are headed to the OHSAA Division II swimming and diving state championships.
Each finished second in one event Friday at the Northwest District swimming and diving meet held at Cleveland State University.
The top two in each event advance to the state meet scheduled for next week at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. An additional 16 competitors in each event are chosen at-large from throughout the state to compete in the state championship meet.
The complete state meet field will be announced on Sunday.
Kleman finished second in the boys 200-yard freestyle in 1:48.68, just a half-second behind Ontario’s Tyler Watson.
Ontario finished atop the team standings with 242 points. Ottawa-Glandorf was 11th with 91 points. Ada tallied 54.5 points to finish 16th.
In the girls meet, Samuelson was the runner-up in the 100-yard backstroke, finishing in 1:00.44. Hannah Stevens of Lexington won the event in a record 53.73 seconds, breaking her own district record of 56.73 set a year ago.
Stevens also established a new record in the 100-yard freestyle when she reached the wall in 49.77 seconds. That was nearly two seconds faster than the record time of 51.39 she set last year.
Stevens also qualified for the state meet in the 400-yard freestyle relay along with teammates Hailee Sautter, Sammie Basinger and Ashley Basham (3:39.38).
