Young Cannon Cougar varsity swimmers exceed expectations

Here is a recap of the Cannon School swim team’s results at yesterday’s Charlotte Independent School Athletic Association (CISAA) conference final:

The Cannon Aqua Cougars competed yesterday at Charlotte Latin School for the CISAA Conference Championships.  The girls had a close second place finish overall in the conference, just losing out to Providence Day by 7 points.  First place finishes from the Lady Cougars included a double win by Maija Roses in the 200 IM (2:12.07) and 100 breaststroke (1:08.75) who is now undefeated in those events three years in a row. Also a top finisher was freshman Diana Dale winning the 100 backstroke (1:02.84). Other standout performances came from freshman Isabella Jacoby placing 2nd in both the 50 free (26.97) and the 100 free (58.68), and sophomore Darby West who finished 2nd in the 100 fly (1:05.41).  The relay squad of Maija Roses, Isabella Jacoby, Darby West, and Diana Dale easily won both the 200 freestyle and 200 medley relays and will look to do the same at the State Championships. Image

On the men’s side with only 8 team members they placed 5th overall.  The top relay finish of 3rd place came from the 200 medley relay team of Harrison Barone, John Dockery, Burke Riley, and Jack Workman.  Top swims on the men’s team came from freshman Harrison Barone getting 3rd place in the 100 fly (57.70) and 4th in the 100 back (1:03.22), and freshman Jack Workman who was 4th in both the 50 free (23.97) and 100 free (53.46). 

The Aqua Cougars had three seniors compete for their final Conference Championship and they included Hannah Hartman, Sam Workman, and Michael Pope.  We now look forward to State Championships on February 18th in Greensboro with 17 team members competing in the meet. 

Go Cougars!
