The state swimming finals kick off on Wednesday in Orlando starting with Class 2A. Class 3A is on Friday and Class A is on Saturday. Eighteen schools from Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast will be represented at the state meet over the three days.

Boca Raton, Jupiter, Martin County, and Saint Andrews have the most swimmers and divers qualified out of the area’s schools and the Suncoast girls have a good shot at doing some damage as a team in the Class 2A final.

A gold medal alert goes to Paul Murray of American Heritage, who is going in as the top seed in the 50 free for Class 1A at 20.84 and the second seed in the 100 free at 47.21. Murray is ahead of Tommy Gutman of Jacksonville Bolles in the 50 free (20.87) and behind Teo D’Alessandro of Pine School in the 100 free (46.56).
