MONONA, Wis. -

The Monona Grove boys swimming team is the Prep Mania Team of the Month.

The Silver Eagles won the WIAA state Division 2 championship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Natatorium last week.

Just five years ago, the Monona Grove program had only six swimmers and they didn't win a dual meet all season long.

But now, there are 30 swimmers in the program and they have their first state championship.

Monona Grove won two relays -- the 200 freestyle and 200 medley relay -- and Tyler Roehr added a victory in the 200 yard IM.

Monona Grove outscored Badger South Conference rivals Madison Edgewood, Milton, McFarland and Fort Atkinson, who all finished in the top five in the team competition at state.
