Barracudas topple records at Spring Splash event

The Barracuda Swim Club of Northeast Tennessee traveled to Barbourville, Ky., over the weekend to compete in the Spring Splash Invitational, and team members returned home with 10 individual meet records and one relay meet mark.

Lynsey Knox rewrote the entire record book for the 13-14 girls on her way to the meet's high point award. She broke the meet records in the 100-meter breaststroke (1:24.42), 50 freestyle (31.59), 200 individual medley (2:40,62), 100 backstroke (1:14.38), 200 breaststroke (3:07.60) and 100 freestyle (1:08.92).

Caitlyn Belcher shaved more than a minute off the old 13-14 girls 800 record, clocking a time of 11:02.78

Evan Cathers toppled records in the 15-over boys 200 freestyle (2:07.72) and 100 freestyle (57.28). He was also runner-up in the high point competition for his age group.

Cassie Lowe was the high-point winner in the 9-10 girls division, also breaking the meet mark in the 200 freestyle (2:48.14).

The 13-older girls relay team of Hannah Gerlock, Annika Cleven, Katlyn Ayers and Knox swam a 4:52.42 in the 400 freestyle relay to set another meet record.

Matt Loving was runner-up in the high point race for 13-14 boys.
