Every Astro posts PR at Fayette Co. YMCA meet

WASHINGTON CH — Each of the nine members of the East Clinton swim team had at least one personal best Wednesday in a meet at the Fayette County YMCA.

East Clinton competed against Washington Senior, Chillicothe Zane Trace, Frankfort Adena and Miami Trace high schools.

The ECHS boys team earned second place overall. The boys relay team consisting of Elyon Hackmann (backstroke), Bo Frye (breaststroke), Jacob George (butterfly) and Barrett Beam (freestyle) finished second in both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays. Individual events were led by Hackmann finishing first in backstroke and second in the 200 IM, Murphy finishing second in the 500 freestyle, Beam finishing second in the 50 freestyle, and George with a third place finish in the 200 freestyle.

This is at least the third swim meet this month where Barrett has been involved with a touch-touch finish in the 50 freestyle, said coach Rich Garnai. Barrett finished second this week by only one hundredth of a second.

Each member of the ECHS girls team contributed to the overall team score for the night and were led by Molly Seabaugh with a second place finish in the 50 freestyle. The girls squad is getting quicker at every meet especially in their 50 freestyle times, coach Garnai said.
