Swimming: Panther teams close out regular season with dual meet at Berry

The LaGrange swim teams wrapped up their regular season meet schedule with a dual meet at Berry last Saturday.

"The dual meet with Berry College was a great last meet of the regular season for us," Coach Chip Aplin said. "We've been working hard in the pool and it is just good to see the hard work paying off.

"Everyone swam faster than they did in the previous week at South Georgia College. Some swimmers were seconds off season-best times. We are right where we want to be going into Conference next month."

Anna Kane was first in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 6:57.55. Ben Ashby won the 200 individual medley in a time of 2:19.46, with teammate Hiram Haro-Oropeza second.

Brennan Wilkes had second place finishes in the 50 and 100 freestyle events. Ben Fuller was second in the 200 freestyle, while Alex Bromby was second in the women's 100 breaststroke.

The teams will compete in the Appalachian Swimming Conference Championships on Feb. 11-13.
