Madison Edgewood won WIAA Division 2 state championships in girls swimming and boys swimming during the 2019-20 school year.

The Crusaders were rewarded with numerous honors in Division 2 from the Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association.

In Division 1, Middleton’s Danny Lynam was named boys swimming coach of the year by WISCA after leading the Cardinals to their first WIAA Division 1 state title during the winter sports season.

Sun Prairie’s Sophie Fiske and Brookfield East’s Reilly Tiltmann shared the top honor as Division 1 girls swimmer of the year.

Edgewood claimed six of the eight awards in Division 2.

Edgewood’s Emily Schwabe was named Division 2 girls coach of the year, while sophomore Anna teDuits was chosen as Division 2 girls swimmer of the year.

The Crusaders’ Ben Stitgen, a junior, was named Division 2 boys diver of the year and Trevor Sisson was honored as Division 2 boys diving coach of the year.

Edgewood senior Truman teDuits was selected as Division 2 boys swimmer of the year and Dan Lindstrom was named Division 2 boys swim coach of the year. Lindstrom stepped down after the season after taking a new job in the Green Bay area.

The Crusaders’ girls won their fifth consecutive Division 2 championship last fall at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium. That tied the all-division record for consecutive team titles. Hartland Arrowhead won five straight Division 1 titles from 2002-06.

Anna teDuits won the 200-yard individual medley, senior Maeve O’Driscoll was first in the 50 freestyle and the top-ranked Crusaders swept the three relays, including setting two new state records, during a dominating performance.

The Edgewood boys won the Division 2 state title for the second consecutive season during the winter sports season.

Swimming personal-best times in his individual events, UW commit Truman teDuits defended his state title in the 200-yard individual medley and matched the state-record time in winning the 100 butterfly. He also was part of the Crusaders’ victorious, record-setting 200 medley relay and their triumphant 400 freestyle relay.

Edgewood finished with 293 points, pulling away from runner-up Cedarburg (265) in the final four events. Stitgen won the diving title for the third consecutive year and senior Nate Frucht defended his title in the 200 freestyle. Edgewood won six events overall.

In Division 1, Lynam directed Middleton to its first state title in boys swimming and diving after second-place finishes the past two years. Second-ranked Middleton used its depth to finish with 228 points, six points better than top-ranked Waukesha South/Catholic Memorial.

The Cardinals finished second in the 400-yard freestyle relay, the meet’s final event. That was Middleton’s top placing.

Fiske, a Sun Prairie junior and UW recruit, made four visits to the top of the awards stand at the Division 1 girls state meet.

She defended her individual titles in the 50 and 100 freestyle events and was the anchor of Sun Prairie’s victorious 200 and 400 free relays.
