Since the beginning of the 2009-10 season, Detroit Lakes junior Jon Melgaard was diving for one thing and one thing only -- the state meet.


Melgaard won almost every meet, and set a couple of records in the process.

But it's this weekend's Class 1A state meet for which he has been preparing since the start.

"The end of the road is what drove me," Melgaard said of the season. "It all leads up to the state meet."
