Taking on Morristown East and Morristown West, Elizabethton began the night by breaking the school’s 200- yard medley relay record (boys) with a time of 1:57.44. Joining forces to set the mark were Scout Walz, Chris Lanthorn, Anthony Hubert and John Smith.
From there, Walz shattered one of Elizabethton’s oldest records, the 200 freestyle, with a time of 1:52.17.
The highlights just kept on coming for the Cyclones, as each swimmer recorded personal bests for the season.
Kelsi McKamey posted a career-best night as the freshman broke the 100 butterfly record with a time of 1:09.56. She also made the state cut with that effort.
Elizabethton will get wet again tonight, participating in the Last Chance meet at Tennessee High’s Viking Hall. This is the final scheduled meet before state competition.
