Only the weather could stop the Scottsboro Swim Association’s Wet ‘n’ Wildcats Thursday night.

Weather cut Scottsboro’s meet with Sheffield short after Event 35, and the visitors were at less than full strength, but the home team was dominant while it lasted, posting a 200-54 victory.

Sheffield and Scottsboro met for the first time as dual meet opponents Thursday evening at the Rec*Com.  The visitors from District 1 are the defending state champion in the mid-sized team group, whereas the District 2 Wet ‘n’ Wildcats placed 3rd in the large team group.

Individual event winners for SSA were Morelia Calderon-Diaz, Arlen Parr, Lily Turlington, Cullen Roberts, Kimberly Calderon-Diaz, Maggie Ella Robbins, Kyle Vosen, Bethany Dugan, Miles Hodges, Cora White, Izzy Nelson, Joseph Gardner, Brady Peek, Grayson Gattis, John Sanders, Olyvia Stone, Tony Pereira and Ryder Linville.

Also scoring for the Wildcats were Dylan Phillips, Clay Giles, Zach Beason, Julia Arnold, Eli Armour, Ada Benson, Jacob Fanning, Baylie Giles, Zach Strogov, Amelia Armour, Harrison Stone, Jessica Simpson, Gabe Lyle, Staton Robbins and Katharyn Sanders.

Scottsboro also swept all 10 medley relay races.

Next up for Scottsboro is the Alabama Recreation and Parks Association's District 2 Meet next weekend in Albertville.
