— Emily McClellan and Alex Riegert of Delavan-Darien High School have committed to Division 1 swimming scholarships at UW-Milwaukee and the University Wisconsin respectively.

McClellan is the 2009-2010 WIAA state girls breaststroke champion, while Riegert is a two-time state boys breaststroke champion. The pair is the first Delavan-Darien swimmers to win state swim championships in the same school year.

“These two swimmers have done this school proud with their accomplishments,” Rion Epping, Delavan-Darien co-coach said. “We haven’t had a swimmer continue at the Division 1 level in quite a while, so this is really special to have two swimmers set to compete at a very high level.’’

Each is expected to compete in the breaststroke. Riegert said he may compete in freestyle events, while McClellan may compete in medley events.
