NAC Athletes Take On The High School State Championships

NAC swimmers converged on Knoxville this past weekend along with swimmers from all over the state in order to compete in the TISCA Swimming & Diving Championship meet. Our athletes were at the heart of some of the biggest moments of the weekend, highlighted by Harpeth Hall’s new national record in the women's 200 medley relay! 3 legs of that record-setting relay were NAC athletes Alex Walsh, Gretchen Walsh, and Ella Nelson. Other highlights included a new state and national independent record in the 100 breast for Alex Walsh, a new state record in the 50 free for Gretchen Walsh, and a first-time junior national cut in the 100 fly for John Clinard.
