Swimming brings home Conference Championship

This past Wednesday, January 23, Carrboro High School Varsity and JV swim teams competed at Conference Championships at Duke University in Durham. The competing teams were recurring opponents North Carolina School of Science and Math (NCSSM), Durham School of the Arts (DSA) and Reidsville. This was the last meet before the Regionals and States meets.

The Carrboro girls came in first overall at Wednesday’s meet, scoring 185 points and crowning the Varsity and JV teams as Conference champions. The Carrboro boys teams came in second with 129 points.

Both the girls and boys did very well, raking in many All Conference titles. To gain this title, the swimmer must place first or second overall in their event. The girls won 11 All Conference titles while the boys won four titles.

All Conference winners for the CHS girls included seniors Paloma Baca, Anneliese Merry and Audrey Costley, as well as freshmen Emily Carpenter, Eve McCallion, Kate Hegland and Lindy Bilden. All Conference winners for the CHS boys were senior Ian Ward and juniors Lincoln Wurster and Alex Prakken.

This was the last meet to make qualifying times before High School Division 1A/2A Regionals. With the swim season coming to its end, CHS swimmers are prepared to give it their all at Regionals and States.
