Chasing them down

Connersville’s Cooper Harvey tracking down the competition in the boys 500-yard freestyle.

The Connersville Spartan swim team came away with 2 wins on Thursday evening in Hagerstown. The Lady Spartan swimmers won 94.5-65.5, and the Spartan men edged out the Tigers 81-78.

“We got some good swims tonight,” Spartan coach Zane Spurlock said, “a lot of races tonight came down to the last 10-15 yards, but we're going to put our heads down and finish strong. A lot of races came down to half or half a second or less. We had three or four of them on the boys side and I think girls were probably the same. We were ready for it once we got down to the toward the end.”
