Like a knife through butter, the Marion County Aquaknights cut through the water to take another win last week.
On Jan. 28, the Aquaknights hosted and defeated Nelson County High School, Thomas Nelson High School, and Bethlehem High School.
“Tonight was great,” Aquaknights Coach Holly Buckman said. “The swimmers did really good. It’s always nice when Bethlehem and Nelson and Marion County get together because we always practice together.”
Though their opponents practice with the Aquaknights, it would not be enough to give them an edge. The Aquaknights sent their foe to the depths with the girls scoring 686 points in the victory. Nelson County scored 181 points to finish second. Both Bethlehem and Thomas Nelson trailed with 99 and 13 points, respectively.
The boys also took the win with 308 points leaving Nelson County to follow closely with 291 points. Both Bethlehem and Thomas Nelson trailed again 71 and 23 points respectively.
Buckman thought Chelsea Wright and Andy O’Daniel stood out for the night but pointed out the boys team also did really well.
“They all did good , we just had a good meet,” Buckman said.
From here, the Aquaknights will be hosted in Russell County on Feb. 14 and 15.
