BHS swimmers set records; FHS duo named King and Queen


Three Bearden relay teams set meet records as the AquaDogs’ swim and dive team won the 2003 Big 10 Relay Carnival at Virginia High School in Bristol, Va. Friday and Saturday among a 13-team field.

“We had some good fly relays for the guys,” said BHS head coach Ben Brink, whose team beat second-place Farragut 1,263 points to 926. “We’ve got a good group of butterfliers on the guys side.”


Meet records were set in the boys 200-yard medley relay (1:47.67) by Jordan Bondurant, Andrew Hudson, Alan Myers-Davis and Sam Kirk; 200 butterfly relay (1:44.70) by Hunter Owen, Sam Tipton, Bondurant and Myers-Davis; and the 100 butterfly relay (:47.47) by Bondurant, Myers-Davis, Owen and Kirk.

“We had a lot of good relays, a pretty solid team effort all the way around,” Brink said. “The divers got a big lead Friday night.”

Bearden now holds eight of the Bristol meet’s 28 event records.

As for divers, BHS’s Jennifer Lamp and Brittany Decker won individual praise from Brink after winning the 1-meter diving event.

FARRAGUT

For having the fastest time in the 25 freestyle, Farragut’s Johnny Riner was named King of the Pool. Myers-Davis was “King” runner-up.

Lady Admiral diver Staley McCartney earned Queen of the Board honors for “highest points for certain dives.”

McCartney and Taylor Reynolds earned first-place in 1-meter mixed relay diving.

As for Bristol, “with what we had there, I’m real pleased with how they did,” FHS head coach Mike Bowman said.

FHS “PILOTS”

Farragut was missing about “15 to 20” swimmers in Bristol, Va. due to “year-round” club meet competition.

Eight of Farragut’s top swimmers were competing with their “year-round” Pilot Aquatic Club swim team at the Music City Invitational in Nashville. Against a 15-team field from across the nation, Pilot finished third overall, second on the boys’ side. The Pilot girls took third.

As for the FHS Pilot swimmers, “all the kids swam well for the most part,” Bowman said. “Brad Jones finaled in a couple of events, Jennifer Hill finaled in a couple of events. Jane Neidhardt finaled in a couple of events. Anna Miller finaled in the 100 and 200 freestyles, the 200 and 400 IM (individual medley), and the 100 backstroke.”

Jessica Hill also earned praise from Bowman.
