State swimming

Fox Chapel freshman Sia Beasley finished 23rd in the 200-yard freestyle and 17th in the 100-yard butterfly at the PIAA Class AAA swimming championships at Bucknell University's Kinney Natatorium.

Beasley, whose time was 1:56.33, was in the pool when a state record was set in the last of the four heats.

In the second heat, defending champion Danielle Siverling of Downingtown East broke her own PIAA Class AAA record of 1:47.49 with a 1:47.37. Then Oakland Catholic sophomore Leah Smith followed with a 1:47.29 and, in the last preliminary heat, the one with Beasley, freshman Meaghan Raab of Hershey broke the record again with a 1:46.53.

Beasley came back with a better showing in the 100 butterfly with a time of 58.46. She missed 16th place and the final slot in the consolation swim by 0.054 seconds.
