Swim Team Results

On January 16 at the 2015 Fayette County Swim Championship the Sandy Creek High School relay team won 3rd place in both the men's freestyle and medley relay. Team captain Matthew Davenport along with Collin Mowery, Tommy Ennis and Vincent Bartolomei will be headed to the Georgia State Swim Championship in February at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. This will be the first appearance in 11 years for the Patriots!

Except for a handful of kids most of the SCHS swimmers had never raced before this season. Last year’s SCHS team was only a team of 10. This season, Sandy Creek surged to 27 dedicated athletes that continue to improve. In addition, SCHS hosted their first county meet championship and represented with great Patriot pride. Donna Lawrence, meet manager for 10 years and GA/USA Swim Official. said, "It is great to see the Sandy Creek team growing and the return of dominance by Sandy Creek. I've been involved with Fayette County HS Swimming for 10 years."

SCHS coach Alexandra Vlachakis is very proud of the swim team and supportive parents for all their dedication and hard work for a successful season.
