Swim Team Day 2 Update from Buffalo, NY
The second day of Nationals for your South Georgia Swim Team proved very beneficial for the women’s team but not quite as good for the men. The women took a commanding 50 point lead over Iowa Central and Southwest Oregon Community Colleges while the men slipped a little. After leading by just one point on Wednesday the Men slipped 42 to points for a total of 203 to the same two schools who are tied with 245 points.
Leading for the women was Kiana Ocasio-Molina with a 3rd place finish in the 200 IM AND a new school record time of 4:44.61. Also scoring in the IM was Jessica Dunton in 5th place and Miranda Henderson in 8th. Sophomore Nikki Daley also shined for the Hawks by breaking the four year old 200 free style record with a time of 1:57.86 while Brittany Herndon captured 7th and Bekah Morris won 8th in the event. Morris took 4th place in the 50 yard backstroke and freshman Skylar Tafelski got on the board with a 8th place finish in the event.
For the men’s team, freshman Andrew Brown had a 6th place finish in the 400 IM and Kevin Bohr placed 9th. Freshman Zac Elz placed 8th in the 200 freestyle.
The Hawks contributed a lot of points to their cause in two important relay events. In the 200 freestyle team event, Molina, Henderson, Morris and Daley tallied a 2nd place finish while Elz, Kyle Martin, Brown and Anchor Jake Davis finished 3rd. Both men and women finished 3rd in the 400 medley relay. For the women it was Molina, Delaney Smith, Dunton, and Daley placing 3rd and Elz, Brown, Trace Austin, and Davis holding the same position.
