City High had two individuals and a relay team make the climb onto the podium for a medal ceremony at the state swimming and diving meet.

That wasn’t the only climbing the Little Hawks did on Saturday.

City High climbed nine spots from its state meet finish last season placing seventh with 118 points at the Marshalltown YMCA.

Led by junior individual medalists Carly Weigel and Olivia Masterson the Little Hawks turned in their best state meet performance in recent history.

Two seasons after placing 23rd with just 19 points the Little Hawks had four top-five finishes en route to a top eight team finish.

Ames won the team title for the fourth consecutive season and eighth time in nine years with 372 points while West Des Moines Dowling was second with 319 followed by Bettendorf with 194 and Ankeny with 185.

Cedar Falls was fifth with 153 to lead a trio of Mississippi Valley Conference teams in the top seven.

West High was sixth with 143 followed by City High which finished 11 points in front of eighth-place Pleasant Valley.

Masterson paced City High with a pair of individual medals while helping two City High relay teams to top-eight finishes.

The junior placed third in the 100 breaststroke and was fourth in the 200 IM in a school-record time of 2:05.01.

Masterson was just more than a second off the pace in the 100 breaststroke as Ames senior Molly Winer won the title in 1:02.17 followed by West Des Moines Dowling sophomore Mary Martin in 1:02.42.

Masterson placed third in 1:03.26, nearly a full second in front of fourth-place Arianna Ottavianelli of Bettendorf.

Weigel earned her first individual medal in the 100 freestyle placing fifth in 52.56.

Ames senior Amy Feddersen won the 100 freestyle in 49.75.

Masterson and Weigel teamed up with Trinity Sadecky and Rika Yahashiri to help City High to a third-place finish in the 200 medley relay.

The Little Hawks finish in a school-record time of 1:46.52 placing behind champion West Des Moines Dowling which won in a state-record time of 1:42.0 and runner-up Ames in 1:44.31.

Masterson, Weigel, Yahashiri and Sadecky also finished eighth in the 200 freestyle relay in 1:38.12.
