Churning through the water at his fastest pace ever, Notre Dame Preparatory High School senior Ansel Averitte captured the Division II state championship in the 50-yard freestyle. Averitte, who did not take even one breath in the two-length race, touched the wall in 21.29 seconds, well ahead of his competitor, Harris Temple, a sophomore from Prescott High School, who finished in 21.62. NDP junior Nicholas Salvino was third in 21.67.

Averitte, who tapered his workouts and shaved his legs and arms to reduce resistance, also scored points in the 100 breaststroke, placing fifth in 51.91; Salvino followed in seventh place.

Averitte and Salvino combined with sophomore Connor Markl and freshman William Bansberg for third place in the 200-yard medley relay, behind Chaparral and Verrado.

Averitte, Salvino, Markl, and junior Payton Mueller teamed for a third-place finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

Markl took seventh in both of his individual events: the 200 individual medley and the 100 backstroke.

As a team, the NDP boys finished fourth with 156 points.  Chaparral dominated as state champions with 364 points. The meet was held at Skyline Aquatic Center in Mesa on Nov. 3-4.
