The 2019 Alabama High School State Championships took place last Saturday at Auburn University’s aquatic center. Westminster Christian took home the girls’ title, winning several individual events and sweeping the relays. Though the Huntsville High boys didn’t win any events, they had the depth to take the title over Daphne High.

Westminster Christian had a pair of girls sweep their individual events. Eboni McCarty won gold in the freestyle sprints, clocking in at 22.88 in the 50 and 50.07 in the 100. Teammate Rebekah Hamilton won the middle distance freestyles. Hamilton first touched in 1:46.91 in the 200 free before going on to be the only swimmer under 500 in the 500 free (4:57.95).

Every individual event on the boys’ side was won by a double event winner. Daphne High had a pair of champions take 4 titles between Andrew Jordan and Trey Sheils. Jordan secured the middle distance sweep with a 1:39.64 in the 200 free and a 4:29.34 in the 500 free. Sheils dominated the 200 IM by nearly 5 seconds (1:50.52) before taking the 100 breast in 55.90.

Grissom High’s Owen Harlow swept the sprints, touching in 20.92 for the 50 free and 46.00 in the 100 free. St. Paul’s Episcopal also had a double event winner as Stephen Conrad won the 100 fly (49.93) and 100 back (49.03).
