The 1A and 2A state swimming and diving championships take place Friday and Saturday in Stuart after Hurricane Nicole coming through the Treasure Coast on Nov. 10 postponed proceedings one week.
In the 2A meet on Saturday, Jensen Beach will send nine total qualifiers among their boys and girls on the roster in individual events and a familiar last name will be seeking her first gold medal in an individual event.
Falcon junior Brynn Stoneburg, the younger sister of Blair Stoneburg, who won seven individual gold medals in her career, will be right in the mix for the top spot in the 200 freestyle.
