Beating Webb, Aqua Ads pumped; BHS next at UT
AquaDogs also own victory versus Spartans


Farragut’s 40-point victory against Webb School, defending state swimming and diving runner-up, is the highlight of the 2007-08 Aqua Admirals’ season.

And while multiple winners such as Eric Craig, Laurel Chaney and Hayden Baker are leading the way, FHS head coach Mike Bowman attributes much of the team’s success to depth, a key factor in beating the Spartans Dec. 16 in UT Student Aquatic Center.

“This was definitely a highlight meet,” Bowman said. “Part of where we beat Webb was on our depth. We’ve been chasing Bearden and Webb the last couple of years. I think the fact that we can beat a team like Webb by 40 points was definitely a huge boost for morale.”

Farragut was led by Craig, champ in the 200-yard freestyle, 100-free, a leg on the first-place 200-free relay with Michael James, Seth Carter and David Allen, and a leg on the first-place 400-free relay with James, Carter and Baker.

Baker also won the boys’ 100-backstroke, while Zac Mason was 500-free champ. Among divers, Farragut’s Phillip Miller was boys champ.

On the girls side, Chaney was champion in the 500-free and 100-backstroke, and was a leg on the first-place 200-free relay with Jenny Darby, Brittany Rooney and Cecilia Wille.

Next up for Farragut is archrival Bearden, as the three-time defending “City Meet” champions will challenge the Aqua Admirals beginning at 1 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 13, in UT Student Aquatic Center.

The AquaDogs also beat Webb earlier this season.

Farragut’s only meet loss was a early season setback against Johnson City Science Hill.
