Swimmer of the Year:

Grant Davis, Sequoyah, Sr.

♦ Scored 32 individual points at the county meet.

♦ Broke his own school and county records in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:41.95, beating his previous time of 1:42.42 at this event in 2019.

♦ Reclaimed the title of county champion in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:43.97.

♦ State runner-up in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:30.92.

♦ Fifth in the state in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:40.52.

“This was definitely a season to remember for me because the beginning of it was odd with all the guidelines in place, and the ending of it was weird because I got COVID near the end of the season,” Davis said. “Going into the county meet, I had been out of the pool for four weeks due to COVID, and going into the state meet, I only had about 10 practices. Given all of this, I was very proud of my accomplishments, as well as our 200-yard freestyle relay team at state who was able to break our team record.”
