2018 Battle Of Due West

The What: Battle of Due West Harrison Meet

The Where: Central Aquatic Center

The When: November 10, 2018; 1 PM

The Battle of Due West is the second meet of the year...and one of our most competitive.

Two Teams Enter, One Team Wins.

The Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs are always a tough match-up for Harrison. Many swimmers know each other, from year-round and summer swim leagues, as well as church and other activities.

The teams arrived at "high noon" to begin warming up for the ensuing battle. The Mustangs swam hard, and looked good throughout the meet, but overall came up a little short. The Mustang men took 1st place (293/241), and the women came in second place (224/297). Overall (517/538), the Mustangs fell for the first time in 7 years to the Harrison H2OYAS.

"Mustangs, I want to tell you how proud we are of your performances against Harrison. We were really happy with our effort and times, but we have a LONG WAY to go. I thought you guys did an amazing job. You must continue to work hard at practice and commit yourself to doing whatever it takes to make the team successful. This week’s meet is our annual quad meet battle with Duluth, as well as Campbell and Peachtree Ridge. We won this meet two out of the last three years ago and this one will be tough, we must make every swim count. Let’s have a great week of practice and keep improving with every swim. GO MUSTANGS."
