CF girls in top 5 at Ripley’s; Saints record 10 state cuts

camb-butterflyThe Carolina Forest girls swim team scored a top-5 finish in the Seventh Annual Ripley’s Invitational meet it hosted at “Pepper” Geddings Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, when 429 swimmers and 18 of the top teams from across the Carolinas hit the pool.

The Lady Panthers were led by Peyton McWhorter and Taylor Steele to place fifth out of 18 teams. McWhorter took home the gold medal in the 100 Butterfly with a time of 1:03.1 and she finished fourth in the 100 Backstroke. Steele posted a career-best time in the 200 Individual Medley for a third-place showing and took home the silver medal with a 1:09.16 in the 100 Breaststroke while breaking a school record that dated back to 2002. Elizabeth Gatley and Jensen Helgerson joined McWhorter and Steele to finish third in the 200 Medley Relay and also qualified for the Class 5A State Meet.

Other top-placing girls from the Grand Strand were Myrtle Beach’s Olivia McGonigal, who captured the gold in the 100 backstroke. St. James’ Kater Wolff finished second in the same race.

The Myrtle Beach boys also had a strong showing in their home pool as Isaiah Ivey struck gold in the 100 backstroke and teammate Ian Morgan won the 500 freestyle.

Waccamaw claimed the boys team title and Bishop England won the girls title.

* The Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach swim team had another solid meet Saturday at Palmetto Christian Academy on Saturday.

Individual top-10 finishes were posted by Emie Jackson (second overall in the 100 freestyle and fourth in the 100 breaststroke), Will Jackson (sixth in the 200 IM), Lucas Harrelson (sixth in the 100 backstroke), and Miles Washington (seventh in both the 100 freestyle and the 100 breaststroke). All were state cuts, as were Hannah Surface (200 freestyle), Abby Permenter (50 freestyle), and Emma Claire (100 freestyle).

The girls 200 medley relay finished 10th while the boys 200 medley relay finished sixth overall. The 200 freestyle relay girls finished 10th while the boys 200 freestyle relay finished eighth.
