The Dunwoody Lady Wildcats got their championship off to a fast start as well as the team of Laura Spratling, Allie Reiter, Hannah Robinson and Kaleigh McGrady opened up with a record setting performance in the 200 medley relay following the Chamblee lead.
A record setting time of 1:52.15 knocked 3.72 seconds off the mark set by Dunwoody in 1992 and set the tone for eight gold medal wins for the Lady Wildcats. Dunwoody would tally 265 points to out swim Lakeside’s 224 and break a three-year win streak for the Lady Vikings.
The title is the 15th for Dunwoody spurred on by a pair of swimmers capturing two individual gold medals on the day. Allie Reiter repeated as the 100 breaststroke champ (1:07.11) and captured the 200 individual medley (2:12.94). Laura Spratling who won a pair of gold medals in 2014 as well won two entirely different events in taking the 100 backstroke (1:00.39) and 100 butterfly (59.89).
Kaleigh McGrady, who teams with Reiter, Spratling and Hannah Robinson for two relay gold medals, brought home the individual gold in the 100 freestyle (55.08). The foursome pulled off Dunwoody’s second consecutive DeKalb County gold medal in the 200 freestyle relay with a time of 1:44.89.
Diver Abbey Yates won her second consecutive county title with a score of 385.95 in the one-meter diving event.
