Smith-Cotton girl’s swimming finished third hosting the West Central Conference championship meet Thursday behind Warrensburg and first-place Nevada.

Rounding out the final team standings were St. Pius X, Center and O’Hara.

Top S-C performers included Mariah Turner, who finished fourth in the 200-yard freestyle at 2 minutes and 29.71 seconds and finished third in the 500-yard freestyle at 6:40.97.

Including her role on two relay teams, Turner collected 93 of Smith-Cotton’s 302 team points.

Finishing with a personal-best for Smith-Cotton in the 500-yard freestyle was Autumn Proffitt. She finished eighth with a time of 7:49.41 seconds.

Proffitt, who usually competes in shorter events, said she had been practicing the 500-yard freestyle and was glad head coach Jerry Tankersley called her name for the race.

“I finally got the opportunity,” Proffitt said. “It was a treat.”

Proffitt also collected 11 points for Smith-Cotton finishing eighth in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:37 seconds.
