Cardinal Newman’s Taylor Young led Redwood Empire swimmers advancing to Saturday’s finals at the NCS Swimming Championships with second-place finishes in the preliminary heats of the 200 Individual Medley and 100 Breaststroke.

Montgomery’s Jenna Bauer is seeded second in the 500 Free and third in the 200 Free going into finals. Riley Scott of Petaluma earned a third seed in both the 200 IM and 100 Breaststroke. Analy’s Rebecca Baxley also qualified for two championship finals — advancing in fourth position in the 100 Back and eighth in the 100 Free.

Among the boys, Jonathan Knox of Analy was the Empire’s top seed — his time of 49.67 placed him third in the 100 Back preliminaries and was also an Empire record. Earlier in the day, Knox set an Empire record in the 200 Free, qualifying fifth in that event. Kevin Mertz of Santa Rosa qualified for the championship final of the 500 Free, finishing fifth in the preliminary heats.

Finals will be held Saturday at Concord Community Pool.

In diving finals Friday, Montgomery’s Tanner McDonald placed fourth. His 11-dive total of 382.85 was the 13th-best time ever by a Redwood Empire diver.
