Fluco swim teams perform well at Regional meet

By Duncan Nixon

Fluvanna County High Swim Coach Jason Davis reports that the Fluco boys’ and girl’s swim teams both turned in strong performances at the Class 3 State swim meet and at Region swim meet. The girl’s team had only two competitors at the State meet, but they turned in strong performances. Lauren Davis was runner-up in diving with an overall score of 357.85, which Coach Davis said is a new school record. Abby Fuller competed in two events at the State meet and set new school records in both events. In what Davis described as “the race of the day”, Fuller finished second, a mere .03 seconds behind the winner. Her time was 23.27. Fuller was 3rd in the 100 free in 50.91.

The boy’s team finished 5th at the State meet with 127 points. The team set a number of new school records. Relay teams were especially strong for the Flucos. The 200 free relay team and the 200 IM relay team finished 2nd and 4th. The record times were 1:29.47 and 1:39.53 respectively. Both teams consisted of Gus Jones, Hunter Strickland, Owen Strickland and Ahmed Woodson. Jones took 4th in the 100 fly with a school record time of 52.07. Hunter Strickland also set a new school record with a time of 2:02.00 in the 200 IM.

At the Region meet, the boy’s team took second place. Its relay teams led the way. The team of Gus Jones, Hunter Strickland, Owen Strickland and Ahmed Woodson finished second in both the 200 medley and the 200 free relays. In the 400 free relay, the team of Austin Fairbanks, Tyler Harris, Jackson Kinsella and Jacob Odnek took fourth place.

The top individual performances for the boy’s team were as follows, Woodson was 2nd in the 500 freestyle, Jones was 3rd in the 100 fly and H. Strickland was 4th 200 IM and the 100 fly.

The girl’s swim and dive team had two Region champions. Abby Fuller finished first in the 50 free sprint, and Lauren Davis won the diving competition. Fuller also finished 2nd in the 100 free.

Coach Davis reports that he gives “a ton of credit” to his assistant coaches Mitchell Pace, Sarah Mensiah and Cos Di Fazio. The Flucos have consistently had strong swim and dive teams despite the fact that the high school has no pool. The team swims its home meets at nearby Fork Union Military Academy, which has a high-quality swim and dive facility. Also, many of the Fluco swimmers compete during the summer on one of the two Swim teams based in Fluvanna County.
