This past Saturday, the AHS Girls’ Swim Team swam for 10th place in Linn-Mar with 79 total points. Altogether there were 12 teams who competed.

Sophomore Bryer Rose swam the 500 yd freestyle at both the Lin-Mar meet and the Dowling meet. She placed 22nd in the Linn-Mar meet, improving by 11 seconds. Junior Clare Christensen swam the 100 yd fly and she improved by two seconds from the previous meet, placing 13th at Linn-Mar. In an interview with the Atlantic News Telegraph, Coach Dean Junker said, “Clare swam a terrific 100 fly,” and, “Bryer had a good 500.”

The 200 yd free relay also improved by a little over a second from meet to meet.

About the Writer
Grace Clay, Editor

A new school year also means another year of writing AHSneedle stories for editor Grace Clay. Now a junior in high school, Clay enjoys writing stories for the website and says it’s “just really fun.” She enjoys the environment that her fellow editors in journalism provide. “The conversations we have are pretty great,” Clay said. Another thing she likes is the freedom she has when writing. Other than writing the “newsy stuff,” she has also been able to voice her opinion on reviews. She created her favorite piece of work her sophomore year: a review of a concert from a band called “The Wrecks.” Her future plans are undecided, as her career choices have been “all over the place.” She said, “from being a forensic scientist to a movie director, it changes every day.” Clay has four dogs, Scooter, Myah, Winchester and Duke, and two cats, Gizmo and Rigby, whom she loves very much. She also loves her favorite food, lasagna, and said that she “couldn’t live without it.”
