Standish went 1:10.44 in the 100 breast and is the favorite in the event for Saturday's league finals.
``She was seeded first, but for her to go 1:10 is pretty significant,'' said Pat Grzenda, head swimming coach of Lawrence High and Free State.
Standish also placed fourth in the 50 freestyle (25.90) and swam on two relays.
LHS junior Kim Miller finished second in the 200 individual medley (2:16.06) and 100 butterfly (1:01.39).
LHS seniors Keely Malone and Lora Wedd, and FSHS freshman Bria DeSalvo also qualified in two events for Saturday's final heat. Malone finished fifth in the 100 butterfly (1:04.09) and sixth in the 200 IM (1:04.09). Wedd was fifth in the 500 freestyle (5:48.18) and sixth in the 100 breast (1:15.19). DeSalvo was fifth in the 100 free (57.82) and sixth in the 200 free (2:06.15).
``For the most part everybody swam really well,'' Grzenda said. ``We had a lot of best times. We plan to do a couple of changes in relays for Saturday to help boost our times. All of Lora's events are in the back half of the meet and we'll taker her off one relay because it's too much.''
LHS freshman Elise Schnose reached Saturday's consolations with 12th-place finishes in the 200 free and 100 free.
Diving prelims are 8:45 a.m. Saturday. Finals for swimming and diving will begin at 1 p.m.
