The following sectional championships were next. At sectionals Danielle set three meet records in fifty free, one hundred breast and four hundred free relay. The next meet in the progression was the State Qualifier Meet. Danielle was the youngest individual in her high school's history to qualify for the New York State Championship meet. Danielle not only left the qualifying meet as an individual qualifier but also set a new school and league record in one of her events. Her coach praised the team as being "disciplined ,focused and goal oriented." Today, 22 years later two of Danielle's records stand.
