Kennesaw Mountain’s swimmers combined to win their own Mountain Madness on Saturday at Central Aquatic Center, posting 1,195 points to beat runner-up Harrison (1,012).

The Mustangs got a huge boost from their boys team, which ousted Harrison by nearly 300 points. Harrison won the girls meet over Kennesaw Mountain by 81 points.

Hillgrove edged Marietta by six points to take third overall. Allatoona was fifth and Walker was sixth.

The Kennesaw Mountain boys started things off with a victory in the 200-yard medley relay. Cullan Sherlock won the 200 freestyle and Thomas Locke clinched the 50 freestyle. Layde Garrett stepped up to win the 100 freestyle, with Devin Zumaran taking second.

The Mustangs also placed third in the 200 freestyle relay and second in the 400 freestyle relay.

The Lady Mustangs won the 400 freestyle relay and scored high in diving, with Jordan Shealy, Abby Martin and Rochelle Still sweeping in the top three. Maggie Layde also contributed by winning the 100 butterfly and 100 freestyle, and Caitlin Oh clinched the 100 breaststroke.

That, however, wasn’t enough for the girls to beat Harrison.

The Lady Hoyas won two of the three relays. Olivia Jacobi was a two-time winner in the 200 individual medley and the 500 freestyle, while Catherine Rothery and Madison McConnell were first and second in the 50 freestyle.
