COLUMBUS — Landing three relay teams and two individuals in districts is a great way to cap off any rebuilding year.
The Mount Vernon Yellow Jacket swim team put up some of its best numbers of the season to make a strong showing at the 2013 OHSAA Central District Swimming and Diving Championships, held at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion at The Ohio State University on Saturday.
“It was a phenomenal day for a team that was in a rebuild year,” said Mount Vernon swim coach Josh Kline. “Everyone had a personal best today.”
Mount Vernon junior Victor Lowe swam the race of his life in the boys 50-meter freestyle but he was in some fast company. His ninth-place time of 22.24 was the best performance by a Mount Vernon swimmer for the day. For Lowe, however, it was a blur.
“I forgot if I even breathed,” said Lowe.
Kline assured his sprinter that he did breathe. “Maybe not the first 25 (yards),” said Kline, “but you have to get oxygen at some point.”
