Congratulations to the Manteo High School (MHS) swim teams that traveled to Elizabeth City on Friday, Jan. 29 and brought back both the women’s and men’s conference championships. According to MHS swim team head coach Raleigh Hudock, this is Manteo’s third year winning the women’s title and second year winning the Men’s title.
“We could not be more pleased and proud at each of our swimmer’s performance,” Hudock said. “They truly left their hearts in the pool. Sophie Benkusky’s performance in the 200 IM, Noah Goetsch’s performance in the 50 and 100 freestyle, and both women’s and men’s 200 and 400 freestyle relays were standouts of the night. The team is preparing and working hard towards next week’s regional competition, and eyeing spots in many individual events for the state competition.”
Goetsch, who was named AAC male swimmer of the year, has been a member of Manteo High School’s swim team for three years. He has committed to swim at William Peace University next year.
