Sophia Brady claimed the 500 free and the Davie girls swim team won a four-team meet at the Yadkin County YMCA on Dec. 14.
Brady’s winning time was 7:26.69.
“Sophia performed excellent,” coach Lance White said. “She is a hard worker in practice and continues to pour in 110-percent effort every time she is in the water. And we are excited to have her as part of our super special sophomore class.”
Brady Sheek was second in two events (200 free, 100 free). Davie was runner-up in six more as it scored 109 points to Elkin’s 87, Starmount’s 39 and East Wilkes’ 31.
Grace Butler (500 free), Logan White (50 free), Elliot Newsome (100 butterfly) and Ava Rajacich (100 backstroke) were second individually. The relays that placed second included A. Rajacich, White, Newsome and Sheek in the 200 medley and Sarah Rajacich, Lillie Seats, Brady and White in the 400 free.
Although the Davie boys finished behind Elkin, it watched two individuals and a relay post first-place times.
The winners were Aiden Davis, who went 2:22.91 in the 200 individual medley; Earnhardt Harris, who turned in a 54.31 in the 100 butterfly; and Davis, Bryce Harnsberger, Jaylen McDaniel and Harris, who clocked out at 1:43.8 in the 200 free relay.
“Earnhardt had another standout performance against several great swimmers from Elkin and Starmount,” White said. “Earnhardt has a super bright future, and we are lucky to have him on the team.
“I am so proud of Aiden. He is a workhorse for the team. His achievements thus far are impressive when you consider the time he has dropped in our practices and meets. He is a silent leader that is always positive.
“I was very happy to see our (200 free relay) pull out a win. With only five boys on the team, we have been limited in relays. But these guys have a lot of heart and a relay win was a good shot of confidence for us.”
Davie got second-place showings from Davis (100 back), Harris (50 free), Austin Boswell (100 breast) and the 200 medley relay team of Davis, Boswell, Harris and Harnsberger.
Elkin won the boys’ side with 118 points. Davie had 62 and Starmount 26.
