INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Among the changes to high school swimming and diving rules for 2017-18 are ones that address risk minimization and requirements for use of the championship meet format.
The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Swimming and Diving Rules Committee recommended seven rules changes at its March 19-21 meeting in Indianapolis, and all changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
Waukesha South/Catholic Memorial ended the reign of six-time champion Madison Memorial by winning the 2017 Division 1 Boys Swimming & Diving championship at the UW Natatorium Saturday.

Two-time defending champion Monona Grove entered the WIAA State Division 2 Boys Swimming and Diving Championships as the program to beat, and they proved to be all that and more Friday at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium in Madison.
The Silver Eagles won the first three events to jump out to a lead in the team standings, and they never looked back.
