MB sweeps regional meet; CF girls, Socastee boys win

mbswim-boyswallToo much water to swim? That was the case at Saturday’s region championships at “Pepper” Geddings Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach, which turned into a local last-chance state qualifier after several schools from outside the Grand Strand opted not to attend due to travel concerns in inclement weather.

But that didn’t stop several Grand Strand teams and swimmers from turning in impressive performances in the tune-up for next week’s state championships in Columbia. The Myrtle Beach boys and girls swept the overall and Region 7-3A titles, while the Socastee boys and Carolina Forest girls won the Region 6-4A crowns.

The Seahawks (117 points) got wins from Isaiah Ivey in the 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke, as well as Sean McGonigial (50 free) and Yianni Paraschos (100 breaststroke). The Lady Seahawks (127 points) got wins from Danielle Flaherty (200 IM, 500 free), and Olivia McGonigal (100 back) and Catherine Miller (200 free). Both teams won the 200 medley and free relay events, while the boys swept the relays by also winning the 400 free.

The North Myrtle Beach boys (75) and girls (88) finished third overall and second in Region 7-3A. The Chiefs were led by Connor Britt Tripp’s win (200 free), while the Lady Chiefs swam away with the 400 free relay title.

The St. James girls (84) placed fourth overall and third in Region 7-3A, thnaks to Ana Wolff’s victories in the 50 and 100 free. The Sharks (48) were third in the region and fifth overall, led by Casey Mitchell’s wins in the 200 IM and 500 free.

The Carolina Forest girls (96) got a pair of wins from Taylor Steele (100 free and 100 breast), and teammates Jensen Helgerson (200 IM), Ashley Woodall (100 butterfly) and Elizabeth Gatley (100 back) won individual events, as well as helping the Lady Panthers sweep the relay events. The Panthers (72) got victories from Jack Vaughn (100 back), Connor Steele (200 free) and Connor Campbell (500 free) for fourth in the region, as well as a relay win in the 200 free.

The Socastee boys (93) finished second overall and first in Region 6-4A behind big days for the Bateson brothers. Eddie Bateson won the 50 free and 100 breast, and Chad Bateson took the 100 free and 200 IM. Teammate Taylor Koppel (100 butterfly) also helped the Braves win the 200 medley and 400 free relays. The Lady Braves (35) got individual wins from Jenn Paul in the 200 and 500 free to finish sixth overall.

Conway’s lone individual win came from Catherine Jackson in the 50 free to help the Lady Tigers finish seventh overall. The Conway boys (10) placed ninth.

The South Carolina State Swimming Championships will be held next weekend in Columbia at the USC Nautatorium.
