Three-time DCSD Swim and Dive Girls’ Champion — Dunwoody Lady Wildcats
The girls’ championship had the same two teams atop the standings as Dunwoody captured its third consecutive title and its 16th overall 269-208 over Chamblee.
Allie Reiter won her 6th and 7th gold medal in DCSD competition as she captured the 200 individual medley (2:11.40) for the third time and the 100 breaststroke (1:05.82) for the fourth consecutive year.
Other individual gold medals for the Lady Wildcats came from Laura Spratling in the 50 freestyle (24.83), Sydney Sloan in the 200 freestyle (2:03.08) and Lauren Davis in the 1 meter diving (419.85).
Dunwoody also won the 200 freestyle relay for the fourth consecutive year as Spratling, Reiter, Keely Sandberg and Hannah Robison swam to gold in 1:43.88, just .08 off the county meet record. Those same four also swam to a meet record of 3:42.50 in the 400 freestyle relay to break the 2014 mark of 3:46.22 set by Lakeside. Chamblee’s relay team of Brynn Lautenbacher, Julie von Biberstein, Teresa Maloney and Jade Foelske finished just behind at 3:42.99 to also eclipse the old record as Foelske almost caught Reiter at the finish.
Chamblee’s second place finish was fueled by a win in the 200 medley relay by the same team that finished runner-up in the 400 freestyle. The group swam a time of 1:54.64 to earn the gold.
Foelske picked up a gold in the 100 freestyle with a time of 53.29.
Other gold medal winners include Julia Shuford of Lakeside in the 500 freestyle (5:18.09) and Nadine Abrahamse of Decatur in the 100 backstroke (1:02.57).
Overall 43 state qualifying times were met in the girls’ competition including all event winners.
