Aledo senior Elijah Sohn captured a pair of gold medals in the boys’ 100- and 200-yard freestyle races while Maddie Edwards earned a gold medal to lead a group of five Aledo swimmers to qualify for state Saturday at the Class 5A, Region II Swimming Meet at the Mansfield ISD natatorium.

Edwards finished first in the girls’ 100-yard breaststroke. Another state qualifier was freshman Ava Willis, who placed second in the girls’ 100-yard butterfly.

Also, the Aledo girls’ 200-yard freestyle relay team of Abby Morrison, Willis, Hanah Terrell and Edwards finished first to qualify for the state meet.

The top two finishers in each event at the regional meet automatically qualify for the state meet in Austin (Feb. 14-15). However, after the eight regional meets conclude, the next eight best times in each event will also qualify for the state meet.
