Maija Hovelsrud kept an impressive streak alive by returning to the state Class A girls swimming meet.

Hovelsrud earned a trip to state with a runner-up time of 1:10.54 in the 100-yard breaststroke at Saturday's Section 8A meet at Grand Rapids. That sent Hovelsrud back to the Class A meet as Park Rapids will be represented at the state meet for the 24th consecutive season.

Hovelsrud also was the section runner-up in that event last season and went on to place 14th in her state debut with a time of 1:09.31. The Park Rapids senior will make her second state appearance Friday, Nov. 17 at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center on the campus of the University of Minnesota. The swimming preliminaries will begin at noon with the finals set for Saturday, Nov. 18 at noon.

Led by Hovelsrud's runner-up finish, the Panthers placed fourth at the section meet with 223 points. Bemidji won the section title with 431 points while Detroit Lakes (422) and Grand Rapids (283) followed.

The Panthers just missed qualifying for state in three other events as Analise Smee, Hovelsrud, Ellie Ulvin and Jordan Klemmer took third in the 200 medley relay in 1:55.69 while Ulvin placed third in the 50 freestyle with a 25.11 and fourth in the 100 butterfly with a 1:02.55.
