Broughton swimmers performed really well at the NC Eastern Regional swimming championships yesterday. Colter Carman looked like Michael Phelps churning through the water during his 500 free. He cut over 10 seconds off his time! And Jack Messenger, even though someone broke his finger during warmups, cut 3 seconds off his 500. Will Close mounted the podium to receive his bronze medal for the 100 fly. Crandall Close cut 4.5 seconds off his IM. The girls' 200 free relay of Adaira Brewer, Genna Brewer, Carson Harvey, and Caroline Willis, took 8th and qualified for States. Almost everyone swam best times at this meet. Great job CAPS!
