The boys’ 200 free relay team earned all-conference honors and the Davie swim teams earned satisfying results in the Central Piedmont Conference championship meet on Jan. 20.

After finishing sixth in the league in 2022, the Davie boys took fourth place. After finishing sixth a year ago, the Lady War Eagles improved to fifth last week.

The top performance for Davie came in the boys’ 200 free relay. Earnhardt Harris, Aiden Davis, Bryce Harnsberger and Logan Zuleger turned in 1:36.30 to claim second. (The top two finishers in each event made all-conference.)

The top 12 scored points. Harris (third in 100 butterfly, fourth in 50 free), Davis (third in 100 back, sixth in 200 free), Harnsberger (seventh in 100 free, eighth in 50 free), Zuleger (sixth in 200 IM, 11th in 100 breast), Austin Boswell (eighth in 100 free, 11th in 100 back) and Colin O’Donnell (11th in 200 free, 11th in 500 free) all scored in two events.

Meanwhile, the Davie girls were paced by Logan White (fifth in breast, eighth in 100 free) and Sophia Brady (12th in 200 free, 12th in 100 free).

Elliot Newsome (10th in butterfly), Sarah Rajacich (11th in butterfly), Lilli Seats (11th in 100 back) and Katy Cheek (11th in breast) also scored for the girls.

“What a great conference championship for Davie,” second-year coach Lance White said. “Obviously it is hard to compete with our team size against other teams. But when you consider how we placed in many events, and even in the top three in several boys events, it is just amazing.”

The team scoring for the boys: Reagan 421, West Forsyth 269, Mt. Tabor 204, Davie 148, Reynolds 104, Glenn 38. On the girls’ side, it was Reagan 344, Reynolds 289, West 248, Tabor 207, Davie 86, East 49.
