The members of the “small but mighty” Covenant Swim team competed in the Cardinal Classic at Southport HS on Saturday afternoon.  The team came away with a new program record and several personal records.  Official 2018 Cardinal Class results.

Junior Dawson Fink continues to rewrite the program record book, as he broke his own record set last year in the 100 Backstroke.  He swam the event on Saturday in 1:04.08, eclipsing his own mark of 1:05.09.  The time was good enough for second place in that event.  Fink also placed fourth in the 50 Free, swimming it in 24.06.

Sophomore Alexis Priesthoff set a PR in the 100 Free, swimming it in 1:01.85, good enough for third place in the event.

Freshman Brenner Lampton dropped a ton of time off his personal best times in both the 100 Free (1:19.82, 16th place) and the 50 Free (32.79, 17th place).

The team will be back in the pool in Tuesday (12/4) at Lawrence Central HS and then next week in the City Championships at Arsenal Tech HS on December 15.
