Tuesday night the Swim and Dive Knights traveled to Dunwoody for a tough region battle.
In an exciting finish, the boys were able to knock off the Wildcats 155-153 by winning the final race of the day. The boys dual meet record improved to 1-2. The girls struggled to match the depth of Dunwoody and fell 195-118. The girls dual meet record slipped to 1-2.
Some very encouraging news for the Knights early in the season is the performance of Aidan Saunders. The underclassman has shown a strong proficiency for the 200IM and 100BR and has already become a valuable member of the relay team. Senior Captain Bryan Teffeteller also continues to be impressive winning another event. Junior Madeline Singletary (500FR state champion in 2019) is faster at this point in the season than she was last year showing why she’s one of the top Junior recruits in the state. Sebastien Sergile who burst onto the scene last year winning bronze in the 500FR his Freshman year is also faster this year. Finally, Freshman Caleb Paek won an event adding some depth to a promising boys season.
