Adrian Lafont-Mueller’s career-best leg in the 400-yard freestyle relay salvaged an otherwise disappointing day for Evanston’s swimmers and divers at the Illinois High School Association state preliminary competition today at New Trier High School.

Lafont-Mueller kept that 400 unit alive for another day with a leadoff split of 47.07 seconds. Lafont-Mueller, Jake Girard (47.87), Ryan Knohl (47.50) and Christian Stankovic (47.07) combined for a time of 3:09.51, the 11th fastest qualifying time, and earned a spot in Saturday’s consolation finals.
