Neither rain, nor snow or three canceled swim meets could keep the 2009-2010 King George High School swim team from its destiny. After sweeping the Battlefield District swim championships for the third year in a row, it’s safe to say that King George is still at the top of the aquatic food chain. As the Foxes girls’ delivered eight first place victories out of a possible 11 for 168.5 points, their male teammates crushed their rivals using a compliment of second to fifth place finishes for 143 points.
A consummate achiever all season, sophomore Leann Miller led the field with victories in the 200-yard individual medley (2:18.68) and the 100-yard butterfly (1:01.83). Arguably the most significant performer at the meet, Miller contributed for a first place finish by swimming the anchor in the 200 and 400 freestyle relay events.
