SJCS Swimmers Sweep CCES, SCS; Girls Golf Falls Just Short
The SJCS swim team swept Christ Church and Southside Christian during a quadrangular meet at Greenville Country Club Monday night.
Both teams lost to Eastside, whose boys have won seven consecutive Class 4A state championships (and eight in all, the first in 3A) and whose girls have won six straight titles.
The boys' 400-meter relay team (Owen Byrd, Evan Harman, Connor Farrell, Aidan Flaherty) recorded the only first-place finish for the Knights. They had three individual runners-up: Farrell in the 100 backstroke, Walker Simpson in the 200 freestyle and Jack Weston in the 100 butterfly.
