— Goals were met and smiles were all around for local and area swimmers in the WIAA Division 1 boys state meet at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium here Saturday.

Janesville Parker High School senior David Dvorak broke his two school records en route to finishing fourth in the 50 and 100 freestyles. The Vikings’ Marcus Genrich, a junior, jumped from his 16th seed to finish ninth in the 100 breaststroke. Parker’s 200 freestyle relay team was disqualified.


Nick Hazekamp, a Janesville Craig junior, finished eighth in the 100 backstroke. Craig senior Tyler Rockenfield finished 16th in the 50 freestyle.


Rockenfield, Josh Babcock, Matt Enloe and Hazekamp combined to finish 22nd in the 400 freestyle relay (3:26.22). Rockenfield, Babcock, Enloe and Tyler Tuescher combined to finish 17th (1:32.43) in the 200 freestyle relay.


Meanwhile, Lake Geneva Badger senior Wes Lagerhausen won state titles in the 50 and 100 freestyles. Lagerhausen anchored Badger/Big Foot’s winning 400 freestyle relay team and second-place 200 freestyle relay team.


Badger senior Jayson O’Connor finished eighth in the 200 individual medley in 1:58.89 and 11th in the 100 backstroke in 54.14.


Badger finished fourth in team scoring with 135 points. Arrowhead nipped Madison Memorial, 217-216, for the championship.


Dvorak had to no complaints with his third and last appearance at the state meet.


“It feels good,” said Dvorak, who was seeking times to qualify for the Junior Nationals meet. “I’m really happy with how I swam. I made my two Junior Nationals cuts.’’


Dvorak posted a 21.68-second time in the 50, beating his school record of 21.70. He had a 47.43 in the 100, breaking his school mark of 47.74.


Genrich shared Dvorak’s feelings.


“I was pretty excited,’’ Genrich said of his 1:02.9 time in 100 breaststroke. “I dropped over a second (off the sectional time) and I beat two guys.’’


Craig coach Jeremy Meserole said Hazekamp performed as expected in the 100 backstroke, moving from 10th seed with a 53.88 time.


“Nick did what he needed to do,” Meserole said. “The first 50 was much faster this week. We wanted to get him out fast and the rest took care of itself.’’


Badger coach Glenn Biller said his swimmers made a lasting impression for the program.


“It was a wonderful finish to some great careers,” Biller said. “They have left a legacy.’’


Lagerhausen, who set a state record in the 200 freestyle (1:39.21) last season as a junior, didn’t set a state mark in winning the 50 free in 20.51 or in winning the 100 free in 45.12. But he still was impressive.


“Wes was very pleased he won his events,” Biller said. “Breaking records would have just been icing on the cake.”


While Lagerhausen took care of business in his individual events, even swimming from behind to win the 100, he made significant contributions in anchoring Badger/Big Foot’s second-place 200 freestyle relay team and its title-winning 400 freestyle team.


Lagerhausen stunned Madison Memorial and Arrowhead for Badger/Big Foot to win the 400.


“He just went crazy,” Biller said. “It was the most amazing 400 relay ever. It was the perfect finish for our season.”


Nathan Kidder, a junior, and seniors Jayson O’Connor and Sam Michalove joined Lagerhausen for a 3:10 winning finish. The same foursome took second to Sauk Prairie/Wisconsin Heights in the 200 freestyle relay by .400 seconds.
