On January 6, the RCHS swim team hosted Turner Ashby High School(TA). The boys team defeated TA with an 87-64 score. 

Prior to the meet, the team honored seven seniors who were awarded with a poster and flowers. Senior Maxwell Johnson gives his thoughts on how senior night went.

“Senior night was good for me because I ended with some solid times and it was nice having my family and friends all around me,” said Johnson. 

Seniors Ali Pffaf and Maxwell Pearson both won the 50 yard free.  Junior Will Gibbs won the 100 yard fly and 200 free placing first. Gibbs gave his thoughts on the meet.

“We felt well prepared with it being senior night and also having friends and family gathered around and we just did our thing, we also really focused and nailed our relays,” said Gibbs. 

The next meet is set to be on Jan. 10, 2023 at the University of Virginia. The time set is 6:00 p.m. For more information on the swim team, visit
