Last year Brookfield East won its first girls swimming and diving championship by capturing the Division 1 title with 243 points. Arrowhead  was second, 23 points behind at 220. In Division 2, Edgewood won the title for the fifth straight season by scoring 290 points. McFarland was runner-up for the second straight season, compiling 163.5 points. 

The WIAA began girls swimming and diving championships in 1970 and moved to a two-division format in 1992. Madison area schools have dominated the championships through the years. Either Madison West or Madison Memorial won all the championships through 1983 and all but one of the Division 1 titles since the inception of the two-division format in 1992 up until 2002. Overall, Madison West has won 15 titles, and Madison Memorial has won 14. Arrowhead has captured 11 titles, and Shorewood has seven championships.

In Division 2:  Four individual  events feature last year's returning champions. Senior Ella Houwers of Whitewater is the two-time returning champion in the 100 breaststroke, which followed a runner-up finish in 2017. She is considered the clear favorite to win the event again this season based on her sectional qualifying performance of 1:06.87, which ranks best among qualifiers. Junior Malia Francis of Rhinelander is the returning champion in two events, both of which she possesses the top qualifying time. Her time of 55.87 in the 100 backstroke makes her the favorite to retain the title in the event. Seniors Erin Bergman of Medford and Emma Clifford of Wausau East also return to the 100 backstroke after finishing sixth and eighth last season, respectively. Francis posted a time of 56.58 in the 100 butterfly, which is two seconds faster than Clifford's time, the next fastest qualifier after she placed seventh in the event last season and fifth in 2018. Senior Bella Smith of Whitnall is the defending champion in the diving competition. She enters the State Meet with the best qualifying score of 495.55. The four-time qualifier also finished runner-up in 2018 and was fourth in 2017. Smith's teammate, junior Kamyla Held, may challenge for the title after finishing second last year and fourth in 2018. Three others that placed in the top eight last year return to the event, including junior Mya Bokerman of New Berlin Eisenhower, who was fourth after an eighth-place standing in 2018; senior Sophia Scolman of Grafton, who has been fifth the past two seasons; and sophomore Maranda Uttke of Grafton, who was sixth in 2019. Houwers is also the top returner in the 200 individual medley after finishing runner-up last year and third in 2018. Junior Amie Barrow of Shorewood swam to the swiftest time in the individual medley at sectionals with a time of 2:10.00, which is less than a second better than junior Rachel Lenz of Whitnall. Junior Faith Forsberg of Rice Lake is both the top returning qualifier and the fastest qualifier in the 50 freestyle. She enters the meet with a seed time of 24.36 after placing fifth last year and ninth in 2018. Senior Maija Carriveau of Marinette/Peshtigo should also contend for the title after placing seventh a year ago. Freshman Abi Winnicki of Rhinelander has the fastest qualifying time in the 100 freestyle at 53.43 in an event relatively free of State Meet experience. Junior Jocelyn Zgola of Greendale turned in the best sectional time in the 200 freestyle at 1:53.65 after she placed seventh a year ago and fourth in 2018. Junior Amelia Kuennen of Shorewood also figures to be in the mix for the title after placing fifth last year. The 500 freestyle features a number of returning competitors. Sophomore Casey Stephens of Whitefish Bay has the best qualifying time of 5:07.52 after a sixth-place finish last season. Zgola finished runner-up in 2019, and she possesses the second-fastest seed time, which is more than six seconds behind Stephens. Senior Makenna Winnicki of Rhinelander is also back after placing fourth last year and seventh in 2018. Shorewood's 200 medley relay was clocked as the fastest qualifying time from sectionals at 1:49.66, and the Rhinelander 200 freestyle relay has posted the best seed time with a time of 1:39.43 after placing eighth in 2019. Greendale recorded a time of 3:40.70 at sectionals, which is the fastest time in the 400 freestyle relay field this year after finishing third last season.
