From MHSAA’s Second Half
Saturday’s Northville girls swimming & diving invitational was billed as a “Meet of Champions” as it included the winning teams from all three 2020 Lower Peninsula Finals – Ann Arbor Pioneer, Birmingham Seaholm and Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood – plus the Mustangs, who are ranked No. 2 in LPD1 this fall behind only Pioneer. The field included a handful of past individual and relay champions, including Chapman – the reigning LPD1 title winner in the 100-yard backstroke who also swam on champion 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays last season as a freshman.
On Saturday, she was part of four first-place finishes as Pioneer topped the team standings as well. Chapman won the 200 individual medley by nearly four seconds in 2:07.64 and the backstroke by 1.4 seconds in 57.76. Her 200 medley relay with teammates Edwina Jalet, Holly Pringle and Sophia Guo won by more than two seconds in 1:48.93, and her 400 freestyle relay with Amelia Weyhing, Autumn Bullinger and Vivian VanRenterghem won in 3:35.96, just under a second ahead of the field.
