Swim Dives Into A State Title

Girls Team Defeats Morgantown by 49.5 Points

Elkins began the season off with multiple meets and difficult practices. Although it was a challenge, the girls team finished their undefeated season with a state title. As the team left on Wednesday, the drumline and their peers all gathered in the hallway to send them off to Morgantown.

The girls won in the 400 freestyle and the 200 medley relay. The boys placed 15th as an overall team with a score of 265.91.

“I am over the moon because for the last four months, I have wanted them to grow as athletes, as human beings, and they have worked their butts off for it. I think that something unique about approaching a victory like this as a coach. I now get to sit back and be proud of everything they did and get to watch their progress through the season.” Mr.Blake, one of the coaches, said.

As the girls team won as a whole, senior Rachel S. completed her last year with a 200-medley relay.
