Fulton County Championships was held at the West Gwinnett Aquatic Center on Thursday night, and the pool was pumping out blazing fast times. Of the 22 swim events, 12 resulted in new meet records.
The onslaught of the record books started early with the Cambridge girls breaking the medley relay record and ended with a fury. The final 8 events of the night were all meet records!!! Unfortunately for Centennial, our final 2 records on the books were wiped away. Julia Treible’s old 2:07 200IM record was broken by Adeline Farrington of Johns Creek (2:05.02), and Elly Deas’ 100BK record of 57.84 set last year was smashed by the explosive Cambridge Freshman Sophie Brison in a time of 56.66.
In a meet that rewards team depth, the Centennial boy’s depth allowed them to battle with the bigger teams. Twelve different boys were able to score points for the Knights as they were able to outpoint every team except the larger Johns Creek and Alpharetta squads. Justin Bender (15 points), Matthew Bender (1 point), Camden Bowers (17 points), Ben Engel (16 points), Jack Ford (4 points), Rhese Goodsite (21 points), Jake Masaschi (11 points), Caleb Paek (18 points), Aidan Saunders (12 points), Sebastien Sergile (40 points), Matthew Singer (12 points), and Bryan Teffeteller (27 points).
The girls were led by Junior Madeline Singletary (33 points) and Seniors Katharine Ward (31 points) and Alexis Bender (22 points). Gabriella Born, Hannah Collerette, and Allee Howard also scored for the Knights.
