Turpin vs Anderson - BIG WIN

Look at all that crazy hair

Turpin Swim & Dive Team traveled to our neighborhood rival competition – Anderson High School on Thursday – Feb 4, 2016.

Each team wants to have bragging rights about who wins what but from what I can see - everyone wins when our kids come together. All these kids have grown up in this community and have competed with/against each other thru school/competitive clubs and summer clubs.

What I saw was a lot of cheering for each of their respective teammates but they also were cheering for their friends on the other side. You saw this in the stands too!!! The night ended with the most exciting Boys 400 Free Relay Race I have ever watched. It came down to the last two swimmers from each team battling it out for the win of the Race. Jonathan Ericksen had a two body length lead when he entered his final leg of the relay. Then Hassler Carroll entered the pool for Anderson. Hassler kept making up ground and on the last 25 they were neck and neck. The Anderson Pool was so loud with cheering from everyone. They touched and everyone looked at the clock to see who had won – IT WAS THAT CLOSE. Turpin won the race with a time of 3:24.36 and Anderson had a time of 3:24.37. Yes, that’s right…it was that close – 1-100th of a second was the difference. Side Note – Jonathan and Hassler are teammates on their Club Swim Team – so these buddies will have something to talk about for sometime.

Turpin did however come away with both an overall WIN for the Girls and Boys Teams. Here are the Event Winners:
