    Ashley Sturman earned a pair of those top seeds for the Wildcats in Friday’s preliminaries at Henley Aquatic Center, swimming to the top time in the 500-yard freestyle (5 minutes, 21.21 seconds) and the 200 freestyle (2:00.14), both state-qualifying times.
    Blue Springs junior Corinne Rinne dropped her state-qualifying time in the 100 breaststroke with a top time of 1:08.82, and she earned a state berth in the 200 individual medley with a second-best time of 2:17.12. She also helped the 200 medley relay team earn a second seed with a state-qualifying time of 1:56.77. Alyssa Aubuchon grabbed the third seed in the 50 freestyle (25.81) and Liz Oles (500 freestyle and 100 butterfly), Lindsey Meyer (100 backstroke) and the 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams also earned spots in the finals with top-eight finishes.
    Lee’s Summit North’s Haley Hynes claimed a pair of top seeds, topping the field in the 100 butterfly (1:01.34) and the 100 backstroke (58.45). Karlee Benefiel (100 butterfly and 200 freestyle) and Felicia Bender (500 freestyle and 200 IM) also earned two berths in the finals each for the Broncos.
    The finals are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. today at Henley. Diving is slated to begin at 8:30 a.m.
