This past Saturday, the Jennings County High School boys and girls swim teams competed against Floyd Central. At the end of the meet, the girls team lost 122-58 and the boys team lost 120-49.
“Floyd is a really good team, and they have been for years,” noted coach Morgan Webster. “Regardless of what the scoreboard says, we swam a great meet.”
The girls team began the meet by breaking a team record in the 200 yard medley relay. The team of Avery Witt, Reagan Brown, Braylee Moore, and Tatum Brown swam the event in 1:56.94, beating the previous record of 1:58.xx set in 2015 by Sierra Bott, Jaylen Millon, Kate Eastman, and Jalea Millon.
Witt set a second record that day, finishing the 100 yard backstroke in 1:02.34, just fast enough to take down the previous record of 1:02.xx set by Laurel Fields over 10 years ago.
Individual winners for the girls swim team were Witt in the 100 yard backstroke and 200 yard freestyle and Reagan Brown in the 200 yard medley and 100 yard breaststroke.
Individual winners for the boys team were Noah McFall in the 500 yard freestyle and Brock Lane in the 100 yard backstoke.
The girls and boys are now set to host Columbus East tonight, Thursday December 9 at Purkhiser Natatorium at JCMS. “Columbus East is a tough team that has had our number the past couple years. If we are able to do our jobs, and win our races, we will be able to put up a fight,” said Webster. The meet is set to begin at 6:00 p.m.
