MORROW, OH (FOX19) -

A Little Miami High School swimmer is headed to the state championships in Canton.

Students and the marching band held a send-off for sophomore Jack German on Thursday as he heads to the OHSAA State Swimming and Diving Championships this weekend at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton.

German qualified for state in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard backstroke after two performances at the Southwest Ohio Division I District Championships at Miami University last weekend.

The sophomore tied for second in the freestyle event, qualifying 10th for the state meet. He finished fourth in the district backstroke contest, qualifying 13th in that event for Canton.

German will be one of only three sophomores in the freestyle event at state, and qualified one spot ahead of rival Jimmy Koloseike of Kings Local Schools in the backstroke.

German is the first Little Miami swimmer to qualify for state-level competition since Steve Zimmerman and Tyler Benner did so in 2011.
