The Centennial Knights Swim and Dive team made a strong showing at the 2017 McCallie Invitational, finishing for a combined sixth out of 25 teams. The boys were 9th and the girls 6th.
The meet started off with diving on Friday (11/17). Centennial had 5 divers participating in the meet, a huge increase from previous years. The divers made a strong showing with Camden Bowers finishing 8th and Allee Howard 16th. Also competing were Susan Canella, Vivian Canella, and Ben Engel. It’s great to have the Knights be able to compete as a team instead of just individuals in the dive events.
Saturday was a day of fast swimming. This was a travel trip so the whole team was not able to come but there were several outstanding Knight swims. Below is a list of the top finishers for the Knights.
