The Fenton varsity girls swim team wasn’t the only area performers at Oakland University last weekend.

 Holly’s Rebecca Costigan and Fenton’s Lara Wujciak also competed at state meets.

 Wujciak, who started the meet ill with a body temperature of 102 degrees, competed in the D3 Girls State Swimming and Diving Championships, competing in four events.

 The junior who attends Powers Catholic High School earned All-State honors in the 100-yard butterfly with a fifth-place time of 57.41 seconds. Her finals time was a 1.03 second drop from her prelim time of 57.21.

 Wujciak also competed during the second day of the meet in one more event — the 200 freestyle. In that event, she teamed with Olivia Camara, Lauren Taylor and Abigail Merz to place 14th with a school-record time of 1:43.37. The squad qualified for the consolation finals by posting a prelim time of 1:43.59 on Friday.

 Wujciak competed in another relay and another individual event that didn’t make it beyond Friday’s preliminary rounds. Powers had its 200 medley relay team of Hannah Murawski, Merz, Wujciak and Taylor finish 20th overall in 1:55.97. Wujciak also competed in the 100 backstroke, posting a 30th-place time of 1:03.82 in the event.

 Holly’s Costigan, a senior,  qualified for the D2 state meet in one event. She finished 29th in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:13.02.
