CHAMPAIGN — The Danville High School boys swim team finished third in Saturday’s IHSA sectional at Champaign Central High school but had some great finishes.

Jon Delzell won the 50 freestyle with a time of 21.79, breaking the record of 22.01 set by Stan Jackowski and the 100 freestyle in 48.48 to advance to next week’s state meet in Winnetka.
