The girls medley relay and free relay, made up of Amelia Farmer, Karlie Benefield, Jaycie Benefield and Izzy Herring, missed the state cut by a fraction of a second, but did set the school records with their swim. The ladies “B” free relay finished in third place. Hannah Prince, Abbey Cook, and Mary Beth Griffin were joined by Laynie Grace Benefield, fresh off the basketball court, to turn in their best time of the season. Individually, in the women’s team has been led by this year's seniors, Amelia Farmer, Jaycie Benefield and Abbey Cook. All three ladies brought their unique gifts to the pool and will be missed going forward. Amelia finished first in the 200 IM and the 100 yard backstroke, Jaycie finished second in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle’s, Abbey brought home two top ten finishes. Karlie added a first in the 100 yard breaststroke and a fourth in the 50 yard freestyle, Mary Beth placed ninth in the 50, and 7th in the 100 yd freestyles. Izzy took first in the 200 yard free and third in the 100 yard free. Hannah was second in the 200 yard free and fifth in the 50 yard freestyle.
The men’s team made up of Bryce Mathis, Blaise Bergiel, Aidan Gresham and Max Farmer had an exceptional day as well. Their 200 yard freestyle relay set a new school record. Bryce finished first in the 50 free with a new school record and second in the 100 yard backstroke breaking the old school record only to be out touched by Max who just edged him out for the new school record in the 100 yard backstroke. Max also set a new school record in the 200 yard IM! Aidan took seventh in the 100 and sixth in the 50 yd freestyles. Blaise added a pair of second-place finishes in the 100 free in the 100 yard breaststroke.
This season might be over but there is still a lot to look forward to in 2019. If you are thinking about a winter sport for next year contact Coach Bush and give swimming a try!
