All three swim teams had a fantastic season in 2020-2021. Although our year looked quite different than traditional seasons, we still posted some top swims.
Firstly, Coffee County High School swimmers competed last weekend at the Middle Tennessee Regional Meet at the Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville. Even though our whole Regional Team was not allowed to compete due to COVID restrictions on the venue. Our swimmers still did well. Kennedy Norman-Young, junior, swam 2 of her best swims all season and 2 personal best times in the 50 free and 100 Butterfly, missing the Tennessee State cuts by mere hundredths. Ellie Masters, HS Sophomore, also swam in the 200 freestyle at Regionals.
Our HS State swim team includes Josh Rutledge, Kennedy Norman-Young and Emily Williams. These swimmers will compete at one of the four sites across Tennessee this weekend at Ensworth. TISCA will combine results from all 4 sites to determine rankings in each event. Although it’s not ideal, the swimmers are just happy to be competing.
As for Middle School teams, their seasons got cut short. Middle Tennessee Swimming was unable to provide them with a Regional meet due to the current climate. This is very unfortunate for these swimmers but are thankful for the meets we did swim.
Coffee County Middle school had four swimmers qualify in multiple events. These swimmers include Brayden Kesling, Christian Bourn, Emily Snider, and Katelynn Hale.
Westwood Middle had 3 swimmers qualify in multiple events as well. These swimmers include Abby Gilday, Elsie Lazalier, and Jack Stowe.
