Boys Varsity Swimming, Girls Varsity Swimming · Bearcat Swimmer CJ Davis wins Two State Championships

Rock Hill Swimmer CJ Davis has been close in the past couple of years, but finally put it all together this past Saturday and won both the 50 and 100 freestyle 5A State Championships at the University of South Carolina pool. A year ago, CJ was standing on the podium accepting his bronze medal in the 50 freestyle. This year, he had two gold medallions around his neck. He swam the 50 freestyle in 21.60, .3 of a second faster than Chad Waldrop from West Ashley HS. His time in the 100 freestyle was 47.44, .32 seconds faster than Jack Roddey from River Bluff HS. Davis, a junior, will be back next year to try and defend his crown.
