Moss, boys team win big for Adairsville at Tiger Plunge

Adairsville’s Rylee Moss earned a state-qualifying time in two events Saturday, and the Adairsville boys swim team took a team victory at the Tiger Plunge at Adairsville High, which also featured Cass and Cartersville.

Rylee Moss qualified for state with two runaway wins and the Adairsville boys team swam to a team victory Saturday at the Tiger Plunge.

At the Adairsville natatorium, Moss won the 100-yard butterfly and backstroke, blowing away her competition.

Her time of 1:01.25 in the fly was nearly 10 seconds ahead of Allatoona’s Sarah Strain.

She was nearly as good in the backstroke, with her time of 1:03.46 beating Ooltewah swimmer Natalie Ohlsson’s time of 1:12.49.

Despite Moss’ blowout wins, the Adairsville women finished second to Allatoona in the team competition, 105 to 70.

The boys team did get a win, outpointing Allatoona 83 to 71, but the combined scores saw the Buccaneers take the overall win, 176 to 147.

Cartersville finished fourth among high schools and Cass fifth.

Adairsville started off the competition with wins in both 200-yard medleys, thanks to the boys team of Jason Bromby, Daniel Sullivan, Scott Nguyen and Chance Jones, and the girls team of Kate Huling, Madison McCommon, Moss and Harper Powell.

Jones would go on to win the 50-yard freestyle, and the same boys relay team also won the 200-yard freestyle relay for Adairsville.

Johnathon Wilkes won both the 100-yard backstroke and breaststroke, and teamed with Jones, Bromby and Sullivan to win the 400-yard freestyle relay, giving the Tigers a clean sweep of the boys relays.

Other Bartow County winners included Cartersville’s Gracie Siniard (200-yard free) and Grayson Breedlove (500-yard free), and Cass’ Eli Wilhoit (100-yard free).
