CONGRATULATIONS to Coach Betsy and the Maryville MIddle Swim Club for beating Hardin Valley Middle School by 3 points at the combined meet this past Sunday, December 1st! The final score was Maryville Middle 142 and Hardin Valley Middle 139! The Hardin Valley Middle school coach told us that it was the Maryville Middle BACKSTROKERS and the Maryville Middle BREASTSTROKERS who made the difference! But the coaches know that it was truly a team effort to win this meet. Go Rebels!
Maryville High School Swimming took its first loss, since I have started coaching the team in 2018. Final score was Hardin Valley 176 – Maryville HS 133. Though the score in no way reflects the potential of our team, the swimmers who showed up did a tremendous job competing in unfamiliar or new events. Thank you swimmers, for being willing to fill in and give your all where it was necessary. Emma Hendrickson, a MHS soccer player, got 2nd in the 500 free after only attending one practice and being asked to swim it the night before. MacKenzie Dunn took a 4th place spot in the 200 free. Audrey Wilson agreed to swim the 200 IM last minute to score some points there. JT Offermann and Daniel Goodman swam the 500 free, adding to the scoreboard for the Rebels. Otto Offermann and Kerry Williard stepped up in the 200 IM. Jack Atchley swam the 200 free. Gracie Bellah helped out by swimming the 100 fly, and Caleb Fikes was able to get a state cut in his 100 fly. Thank you parents, who were graciously willing to volunteer for the meet. We coaches cannot do our jobs effectively without your time and effort and care for our kids. We truly appreciate you all and cannot say this enough.
