Carolina Forest swimmers win Socastee Invitational

The Carolina Forest swimming teams continued their successful seasons by winning both the boys and girls divisions of the Socastee Invitational on Saturday at Coastal Carolina University. Competing against a field of 13 teams, the Panthers set seven school records and logged 38 career personal-best time.

The Caroliona Forest girls amassed 330 points to defeat runner-up North Myrtle Beach (294), West Florence (252), Myrtle Beach (238) and St. James (175). Conway (110) placed eighth and Socastee (7) finished 12th.

The Lady Panthers’ relay team consisting of Jensen Helgerson, Taylor Steele, Payton McWhorter and Anna Satterfield won both the 200 Medley Relay and the 200 Freestyle Relay. In addition to their first-place finishes, they received automatic qualification time to the state meet for both events.

Taylor Steele took first place, qualified for the state meet and broke a long standing school record in the 200 Individual Medley. Harrison Clinton also won the 200 Individual Medley and broke his own school record that he set two weeks ago when he qualified for state in that event.

Peyton McWhorter won both the 100 Butterfly and the 100 Backstroke just missing the school record by less than a second. Morgan Young had a strong swim in the 500 Freestyle and took third place while Ethan Nechemia won the boys 500 Freestyle and broke a school record.

Taylor Steele completed her personal sweep of the day winning the 100 Breaststroke and once again lowering her own school record time. Harrison Clinton came in second place by just three hundredths of a second, but qualified for state and broke yet another school record in the 100 Breaststroke.

The Carolina Forest boys (286) edged Myrtle Beach (285) by a single point to win the meet. St. James (195) took fifth place and North Myrtle Beach (159) placed sixth. Conway (67) finished 10th and Socastee (46) placed 11th.

The Panthers’ relay team of Ethan Nechemia, Harrison Clinton, Rafael Adi and David Zevgolis also won the 200 Medley Relay and placed second in the 400 Freestyle Relay. In the process they once again broke their own school record for both events.

In addition to the top three places several team members swam their career person bests including: Alexandra Damonte, MaKayla Griggs, Kylie McWhorter, Saman Vitharana, Anna Satterfield, Anna Fortenberry, Raven Bunton, Lilly Hortis, Trinity Hanna, MaKayla Kuhl, David Zevgolis, Christoph Tatgenhorst, Timothy Flores, Noah Carralero, Rafael Adi, Dana Shadoan, Josh Duque, Meghan, Freiler and Anson Vossberg.

North Myrtle Beach also got strong performances with 16 personal-best times. Top finishes included Shea Hardman and Connor Britt-Tripp in the 200 Free, Sydney Hardman in the 50 free and 100 free, Summer Ratley in the 100 fly and 500 free, Brynne Hardman in the 500 Free and the Girl’s 400 Free Relay.
