Highlands HS varsity swim team fares well in Franklin

The Highlands School varsity swim team traveled to Franklin to swim against Franklin, Smoky Mountain, Tri-County Early College, and Hayesville on Saturday, Jan. 15.

The team of only two freshmen, Finneaus Garner and Bria Taylor finished 4th!

Both swimmers swam the 50 and 100 Freestyle and had best times in both.  Garner scored 14 points and Taylor 6.

AAU Jr. Olympian Garner’s times were both consideration times for regionals with his 50 free time (25.01) being 0.02 seconds away from the automatic time.

The next meet will be a last chance qualifying meet for Garner in Buncombe County January 29.
