City meet champion Dubuque Senior landed five of the 10 spots on the all-city swimming and diving team.
Hempstead placed three athletes and Wahlert landed two on the squad, selected by the coaches for the three schools.
To make the first-team, a swimmer or diver had to post a top-two result among Dubuque athletes in individual events or swim on the fastest relay team during the season. Second-teamers finished third and fourth in individual events or on the second-fastest relay, and honorable mention picks were fifth and sixth in individual events.
