Payton Parman raced to a third-place finish to pace the Berlin/Green Lake swim team at the WIAA Division 2 sectional meet at Plymouth on Saturday.

Parman finished with a time of 2:14.00, about four seconds behind winner Ellen Stello of Shorewood, and will await word of whether she qualified for the state meet or not.

Parman also added a fifth-place finish in the 100-yard butterfly, while teammate Mattea Arndt was fifth in the 100-yard freestyle.

Parman, Arndt, Celia Mueller and Emily Vlachina finished fifth in the 400-yard freestyle relay for Berlin/Green Lake.

The sectional champions in each event automatically qualify for the state meet, which will be held next weekend in Madison. The state field is then filled out by those swimmers who best the qualifying standards.

Shorewood captured the team title by a mere nine points over Grafton. Berlin/Green lake finished sixth.
