With the 3A district meets having wrapped up and regions doing just the same, we here at FSN want to give a big shout out to some noteworthy seniors.
First up, from District One, is freestyle power house Quintin Scholz of Niceville. Scholz raced head to head in the 200 freestyle with junior James Tracey and they finished merely 0.09 apart. Scholz grabbed first while Tracey proceeded to get second. Neither of these athletes have announced a commitment to a college yet.
From District Two is Ryland Sun of Chiles. Sun swam both the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly. This indomitable sprinter from the Capitol City, won both events and is set to be on top at his regional and state meets this year. Sun is committed to swim at Florida State University next fall.
Summer Stanfield of Bartram Trail, from District Three, is a stroke force to be reckoned with. Seizing the win in both the 200 IM and the 100 Butterfly, Stanfield proves to be a person to look out for. In addition to winning the 200 IM, Stanfield proceeded to acquire an “All American” title. Stanfield is set to swim in the bayous for Louisiana State University next year.
From District Four is Kali Bush of Lake Minneola. Bush won the 200 freestyle with a personal best time. In addition to the 200 freestyle win, Bush placed second in the 500 freestyle. Bush is set to swim both of these events at regionals. As of right now, Bush has not committed anywhere to continue her swimming career.
Next up is Ethan McCloud of Sebastian River. This stroke and IM power swimmer is set to place high at both regionals and state this year. McCloud won both the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke. Progressing into regionals and state, McCloud is looking to place high and swim even faster. At this moment, McCloud has not committed anywhere.
And, finally, from District Six is Daryl Clark. Clark won both the 100 freestyle and the 100 backstroke in his district. Clark is set to be one of the top swimmers, next to McCloud, at his regionals meet. As of now, Clark hasn’t committed to any college for future swimming.
Overall, there were many swimmers who swam this round of district meets, and we look forward to seeing how they succeed at both regional and state meets.
