A number of Scottsboro swimmers took advantage on a “Last Chance” to swim a sectional qualifying time Tuesday night.

Scottsboro had a number of swimmers achieve that feat during the Scottsboro Last Chance Swim Meet Tuesday night at the Rec*Com.

The Class 6A-7A North Alabama Sectional Meet is Nov. 19-20 at the Huntsville Aquatic Center.

While adding swimmers to its sectional roster, Scottsboro also won the girls division and placed second in the boys division.

Scottsboro finished with a team score of 127, edging runner-up Boaz (102) by 25 points in the girls division. Buckhorn (49.5) finished third while Madison County (43) was fourth.

On the boys side, the Wildcats (116) finished second behind meet winner Boaz (129). Madison County (30) finished third while Buckhorn (19) was fourth and Cherokee County (12) was fifth.

Luke Armour and Benjamin Bradford won two individual races each while Armour, Bradford, Jake Benson and Arlen Parr teamed up to win both the 200- and 400-yard Freestyle Relay races.

Meanwhile, Paige Giles won a pair of individual races while Lily Turlington, Alice Merck, Audrey Frye and Shelton Linville teamed up for a win in relay competition.

“We had a lot of great swims,” said Scottsboro coach Matt Brewer. “We had several swimmers make sectional times, which was the whole reason for this meet. We were not necessarily concerned about points or team rankings, we just wanted to try and qualify as many swimmers as possible for next weekend. Overall we were very pleased with the efforts from each and every swimmer.”
