Seven of our swimmers qualified for state at this meet: Winn Martin (1st-100 fly, 2nd-50 free, 3rd-100 breaststroke); Morgan Miller (1st-200 IM, 1st-50 free, 2nd-100 fly); Kira Andrews (1st-100 free, 2nd-200 IM, 3rd-100 fly); Mallory Fortson (1st-50 Breaststroke, 2nd-100 IM, 2nd-50 back), Cole Abney (2nd-100 free, 3rd-50 back, 7th-50 free), and Cal Canterbury (6th-50 free, 8th-100 free). The Middle School girls’ relay team (Kinley Andrews, Mallory Fortson, Addi Lewis, and Mackenzie Parker) finished 3rd in the 200 free relay! Great job, Hornet swimmers!! #westfieldswimming
