The St. Andrew's girls finished second and the boys third at Saturday's Class 1A state swimming and diving championships at the Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Center in Orlando.
Led by sophomore Megan Moroney, the Scot girls totalled 251.5 points, second to Jacksonville-Bolles' 408.
Moroney captured two golds, winning the 200-yard freestyle in 1:48.02 and the 100 butterfly in 54.46. She also was a member of the Scots' 200 medley relay team that took gold in 1:42.77 and the 400 freestyle relay team that won in a state-record time of 3:23.43. Joining Moroney on the Scots' winning relays were junior Brenna Ruth, sophomore Rachael Bradford-Feldman and senior Tasija Karosas.
Karosas took individual gold in the 100 backstroke in a state-record 53.62 and silver in the 200 individual medley (2:01.38), just behind Bradford-Deldman (2:00.40).
In the boys competition, St. Andrew's finished with 179 points, behind Bolles' 512 and Orlando-Lake Highland Prep's 200.5.
Quinn Cassidy led the Scots with individual golds in the 200 IM (1:49.64) and 100 breast stroke (56.87).
