The Scottsboro varsity girls and boys swim teams season-opening meet was a splashing success.

The Wildcats swept the teams titles during the Scottsboro Invitational on Thursday at the Scottsboro Rec*Com on Thursday.

Scottsboro won the varsity girls division with a team score of 142 points, with Madison County second (106), St. John Paul II third (85), Section fourth (18) and Hazel Green fifth (sixth).

“Super proud of the effort from the girls team,” said Scottsboro varsity girls head coach Shalyn Benson. “We had a lot of young swimmers step up and score points and really contribute in relays. Additionally, it was fun to see the swimmers come out of their comfort zones and attempt events that they had never swam before. We had several PRs (personal records) and it is because of the hard work these ladies are putting in each and every day.”

Meanwhile, Scottsboro won the varsity boys division with a team score of 159. SJPII finished second (84) while Hazel Green was third (65) and Madison County fourth (48).

“Each and every guy contributed to our first win of the season, and with it being a home meet, it made it even more special,” said SHS boys head coach Matt Brewer. “I was really pleased with the effort I saw during the races. You know you have a great team, when each member wants to see the others succeed. As a coach, that in itself is more remarkable than any win! Really excited to see what this group does moving forward with our season.”

Scottsboro swimmers won eight of the varsity boys division’s 11 races and five of the 11 varsity girls races. 

Luke Armour and Jake Benson were part of four first-place finishes (two individual races and two relay races) for the SHS boys while Parr was part of three first-place finishes and Benjamin Bradford was part of two. Lily Turlington was part of three first-place finishes for the SHS girls while Shelton Linville was part of two.

Meanwhile, Section’s Maggie Ella Robbins won both of her races.
