by Staff Reports

GREENSBORO -- Six members of the Watauga Swim Team competed in the 2014 N.C. 14-under Short Course Championships at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in February.

Caroline Forsyth finished in third place in the 100-yard breaststroke and fourth in the 200 breaststroke. Isabelle Temple finished 10th in the 50 breaststroke and 11th in the 100 breaststroke.
Grace Temple swam to a team record in the 100 butterfly.

The two relay teams -- the 200-medley relay and the 200 freestyle relay -- comprised of Ella Campbell, Alayna Arnholt, Forsyth and Grace Temple also set team records.

Temple swam in several events including the 100 butterfly, 200-medley relay and the 200 freestyle relay. Isabelle Temple swam in the 100 freestyle, the 50 breaststroke, the 100 breaststroke, the 50 and 100 butterfly and the 100 and 200 individual medley.

Henryk Kosmala swam in the 50 and 100 butterfly. He also swam in the 100 backstroke.
Campbell swam in the 100 and 200 breaststroke, the 50 freestyle and both relays.

Forsyth swam in the 100 and 200 breaststroke, the 100 butterfly, the 100 backstroke, the 50 and 100 freestyle and in both relays.

Arnholt swam in the two relays.

Kosmala, Campbell, Forsyth, Grace Temple and Isabelle Temple earned qualifying times fast enough to advance to the sectional level. The team will compete in the sectional in Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center on March 20.

"Our swimmers should be very proud of themselves," Watauga coach Nate Fields said. "They put in a ton of work to get to this level in the sport and to swim as well as they did just makes the weekend even better."
