Earnhardt Harris, the Davie boys swim team’s super sophomore, continued to impress in two meets before Christmas break.
He finished first in the 50 free (23.04) and 100 butterfly (55.35) when Davie faced Reagan and Reynolds at the Kernersville YMCA on Dec. 20.
And then in a huge meet, the Robert Sawyer Invitational, at the Greensboro Acquatic Center on Dec. 21, Harris showed more of what he’s capable of.
The only top-five finisher for the boys and girls from Davie, Harris was fifth out of 34 in the 50 free at 22.71, and he was fifth out of 35 in the 100 butterfly at 53.56.
Coach Lance White has gushed about Harris all season.
“He has a super bright future,” he said. “He has a lot of natural talent, and when you couple that talent with the hard work he puts in, success will follow. He is exciting to watch. I believe he may break a record or two at Davie.”
At the Kernersville YMCA, Reagan won both meets. The female Raiders had 134 points to Reynolds’ 116 and Davie’s 48. The Reagan boys had 127 to Reynolds’ 102 and Davie’s 25.
In the Robert Sawyer Invitational, the Davie boys placed 13th out of 20 teams with 49 points. The Davie girls were 14th of 22 with 52 points.
