The winning group represented division 4A at the high school state championship meet in Columbia in 2012.
Senior Garrett Hills brought home the win in the 50 freestyle, the 100 freestyle and the 400 freestyle relays. He was the only boys’ record setter. His 45.88 in the 100 freestyle relay broke the state mark previously set in 2009.
John Slavens, a junior, was the champion in the 400 freestyle relay as was senior Braxton Shuler and senior Charles Graham. Sophomore Morgan Rulevich rounded out the championship group with a medal in the 100 breaststroke.
“Many congratulations to our champs,” said Hester. “CHS is very proud of the Blue Eagle swimmers who have worked tirelessly in the water for many long hours.”
