Champlin Park's Duncan dominates at sections; Junior cruises back to state swim meet with record times in 7AA
Abby Duncan of Champlin Park swims in the 200-yard individual medley at the section meet.
Champlin Park junior Abby Duncan sent a message to the other girls competing in either the 200-yard IM or 100 breaststroke in this weeks Class AA girls state swimming and diving meet - good luck.
Duncan, the two-time defending state champion in the breaststroke and last year's title winner in the individual medley, won both races on the final day of the Section 7AA meet Saturday, Nov. 14 at Northdale Middle School in Coon Rapids, breaking her own records in breathtaking fashion in each event.
She swam to a time of 2 minutes, 4.91 seconds in the IM, setting a new pool and section record while winning by nearly 10 seconds.
In the breaststroke, Duncan beat the field by over six seconds, again with a new pool and section record time, this time at 1:02.18.
She was also on the Rebels' 200-medley relay team that qualified for state by finishing first in 1:53.72. Junior Megan Ling, sophomore Laura Ledray and junior Sarah Langer also competed on that relay.
