Mackenzie Hubbard, Managing Editor

On Friday, February 24, the swim team participated in the MAC Silver Divisions meet at Lakeshore High School. The team worked very hard and got second place with 292.5 points.

Junior Trenton Buckbee swam in the 200 yard medley relay, the 50 yard freestyle, the 100 yard freestyle, and the 400 freestyle relay. He got first place in both the 200 yard medley relay and the 400 yard freestyle relay, and third place in both the 50 yard freestyle and the 100 yard freestyle. “I really enjoyed divisions, I’m proud of the whole team on improving on their times, but I am sad that the seniors can’t have another year here,” Buckbee said.

Senior Julia Puckett swam in the 200 yard medley relay, the 500 yard freestyle, the 200 yard freestyle relay, and the 100 yard breaststroke. She medaled in two of the four, getting sixth place in the 500 yard freestyle and third place in the 200 yard freestyle relay. “We came and swam to win and I’m incredibly proud of the entire team for doing their best,” Puckett said.

As we see the swim season off, we congratulate the co-ed swim team of their second place at the MAC Silver Divisions meet.
