Charger Swimming has officially kicked off the 2016 season with a SPLASH! We have several fantastic returning swimmers and some impressive additions to our Charger team this year. We have Sarah Kirchoff and Keegan Hood returning to the team and adding Kassidy Gamblin and Steven McBride to finish off their Senior year strong! Our solid juniors this year are Taylor Baggett, Anthony Champagne, Clayton Curtis, Taylor Echlin, Eva Faust, Payton Hanson, Alexis Hughes, Bailey Jones, Sean Kent, Michael Linderman, Jodie Rose, and Jack Thornton, all who are changing up their usual events to bring home more W’s for Charger Swimming! Finally, our powerful Sophomores are Caron Harris, Brooks Hernandez, Chloe Robinson, Tyler Turoski, and Abbie Gascon, with underclassmen, Nancy Winebarger and McKayla Hughes. Whether it’s an individual event or one of our unprecedented relay teams, this motivated bunch of swimmers is ready to do whatever it takes to bring home a big CHARGER WIN!
Charger Swimming took 4th place overall at our meet last week in Tunica against several Desoto County teams while bringing in personal best times. We’ve already had a number of qualifiers for North Half and anticipate State qualifiers in the upcoming meets. Wish a Charger Swimmer good luck as they go on to swim their personal bests, meet qualifying times, and truly show what CHARGER STRONG is!
