Only the combined St. Charles Lutheran-O’Fallon Christian team finished in front of the St. Francis Borgia Regional Lady Knights Sunday at the Archdiocesan Athletic Association girls swimming meet.

“The girls knew this was their last chance to get to state, the only invitational this season, and they stepped up in a major way,” Borgia Head Coach Diane Jones said.

Lutheran-Christian scored 286 points to win the AAA girls swimming championships Sunday at the St. Peters Rec-Plex.

Borgia was second at 240 points, edging St. Dominic by one point for second place.

“Edging out St. Dominic by one point was a team-wide accomplishment,” Jones said. “Every finish, every point mattered, every single swimmer mattered. It is a total life lesson in teamwork.”
