Swim team glides to top finishes in recent meets


The Admiral Farragut boys and girls team both took first in a tri-meet they hosted for Senior Night against Keswick Christian and Indian Rocks Christian on October 10, two days after the boys team turned in an impressive fifth-place performance at the City Invitational.

“I am so proud of all of our swimmers as they are doing an absolutely amazing job,” BlueJackets coach Jan Browning said.

The boys team beat Keswick 96-63 and Indian Rocks 82-68 to improve its head-to-head record to 8-0 this season. The girls team beat Indian Rocks 52-47 but lost to Keswick by a score of 80-45 and their record now stands at 2-6.
