Swimmers Take Top Spots at County Championships

Swimmers Take Top Spots at County Championships

 

In the recent Cobb county swimming championships, MPC swimmer M. Norton placed first in the 200-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke. He also set county records in these two events, plus the 50- and 100-yard lead off in the freestyle relays. He won the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:37.81, with the previous record being 1:37.92 set by former Sprayberry standout Ananda Lim in 2018. His record-setting time in the 100-yard backstroke, 49.32, broke Wheeler's Doug Jones' record of 51.09 set in 1988.

Also, congrats to C. Salmon, who placed third overall in the 100-yard backstroke in the Cobb championships. E. Norton placed first overall in the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle. The girls relay team finished top 10 in the county. Team members are C. Salmon, S. McCune, A. Farley, and E. Norton. We wish all of our swimmers the best as they head to State!
