MS swim team wins


The swim team from Switzerland County Middle School continues to have an outstanding season.

Last Thursday, February 21st, the swim team had an exciting meet against Madison and despite a 70-69 loss the team had some great swims.

School records continue to fall this year – with two more going down in Thursday’s meet. Colton Penick established a new 50-yard butterfly record; and Nick Braun had a record-breaking swim in the 50-yard breaststroke.

There were plenty of other impressive swims:

– Nathan Braun bested his 200-yard freestyle time by 26-seconds.

– Ally Furnish swam her first-ever 200-yard freestyle swim, and earned first place with a time under three minutes.

– Other best times posted were: Shae Lack in the 100-yard intermediate medley and the 50-yard breaststroke; Kelsey Kerkoff in the 100-yard freestyle and the 50-yard backstroke; Cameron Papucci and Alex Edwards in both the 50-yard backstroke and the 50-yard freestyle; Corey Profitt and Kaitlyn Lack in 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle; and Deanna Voris in 100-yard intermediate medley and the 50-yard butterfly.
