— Taylor Ewards

South Forsyth High School’s state qualifying swimmers recently competed in the GHSA state championship on February 3rd.

The South swim team placed 7th overall with top 10 finishes for Jordan Edwards (100 breastroke), Emilie Flynn (500 free), Cooper Gilson (100 breast), Caroline Perry (200 IM, 100 back), Jake Taulbee (500 free), Girls 200 and 400 free relay, Girls 200 medley relay, and Boys 200 medley relay. South Forsyth also took second at county after Lambert High School, respectively. Cooper Gilson won the 100 breast and most War Eagle swimmers placed in the top 10. At county, South was able to honor their seniors at their very last county and GHSA state championship swim meet. The South Forsyth state swimmers received a warm sendoff from students as they walked through the building and passed the courtyard. 

“I think that we did very well and every swimmer put 100% effort into every race. We put our best swimmers in the pool. Next year, I hope that we can have even more state qualifiers and finalists and we can place even higher,” state qualifier Taylor Edwards said.
