GHSA State Championships
A roster of quality upperclassmen swimmers got a boost from some young underclassmen. It helped lead the Mustangs to a second place finish in the Cobb County Championships and a county best fifth place finish in the Class AAAAAAA state championship meet.
For much of the season, Coach David Reason said winning meets was not important. The main goal was to prepare the team to compete at county and state. He said they did it by utilizing their depth, and moving swimmers around to see what their best role for the team would be.
The team was anchored by members of its relay squads — Ben McClain, Brett Reason, Connor Haigh and Zach Lowe. The four won county in the 200-yard freestyle relay and finished second in the state meet. It also finished third in state in the 400-yard freestyle relay. Members of the quartet also had success individually.
Connor Haigh won the Class AAAAAAA 100-yard breaststroke and finished third in the 200-yard individual medley. McClain was third in the 100-yard freestyle and fifth in the 200-yard freestyle.
Congratulations to the entire team for a great season.
