Tigers place 12th at GHSA state swim championships

The Adairsville boys swim team picked up three top-10 finishes en route to placing 12th overall in the Class 1A-3A state meet at Georgia Tech.

All three Tigers relay teams qualified for state. While the 400-yard freestyle team didn't reach the finals, Adairsville's 200 free and 200 medley squads both finished inside the top 10. The former came in ninth, and the latter wound up 10th.

Most impressively, the members of the 200 medley team were all underclassmen — juniors Cooper Brown and Andy Barnett, along with freshmen Gabriel Greenway and Brayden Rizer. The 200 free team was fairly young, as well, with Brown, Barnett and Rizer joining senior Landon Smrcina.

Individually, Brown registered an 11th-place showing in the 100 breaststroke. Brown and Barnett placed 10th and 12th, respectively, in the 200 individual medley. Barnett also qualified in the 100 butterfly, although he didn't make it past the preliminaries.
