In addition, Vander Ploeg qualified for state in his individual events, the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle. He also broke the Osseo school record in the 200 freestyle at section finals and now holds the Osseo school record in both the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle.

“Sections went well,” Osseo coach Marshall Abrahamson said. “We had time drops all across the board for our swimmers. It was rewarding to see them swim fast in their races.”
