After winning four state titles last season, Edmond North junior Ally Robertson delivered a repeat performance Saturday in the Class 6A swimming state championship.

She just didn't break a record like last season.

“My training wasn't quite where I wanted it to be this year, so I was happy to come in and win the events that I did,” Robertson said. “Next year I definitely want to shoot for those records.”

She won individual titles in the 200-yard IM and the 100 breaststroke, while helping the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams strike gold.

Edmond North finished second to Norman North after winning the past three championships, but that didn't keep the smile from Robertson's face.

“I honestly couldn't ask for anything better,” she said. “I was so happy with our relay and our team. We knew that Norman North had an amazing team this year, so everything was going to be pretty close. I'm happy they pulled it out, but I think everything our team did was amazing as well.”
