Swimmers compete against county rivals

In a fun, non-conference meet, the expectations are to lower the times.

New Bern had 19 personal-bests. Havelock and Epiphany also had a bunch.

“That’s a lot of personal-bests,” New Bern coach Adrienne Bykowicz said. “Every event, I saw lots of hand-shaking and it was nice to see.”

Havelock sophomore Emily Bess and New Bern’s Kim O’Connor scored 18 points – the most of any female swimmers.

Bess claimed first in the 200-yard individual medley (2:51.33) and 100 freestyle (1:04.75). O’Connor won the 100 butterfly (1:10.12) and 500 free (6:03.83).

“I had a lot of personal-best times,” Johnson said. “Emily Bess really improved. She is only a couple seconds off her automatic for regionals.

“She finished first in the IM, first in the 100 and did really well in her relays.”
