from staff reports

  Competing in Church Hill Tuesday night, Briana McManus and Justin Stanley continued their winning streaks and led the Elizabethton Barracuda Swim Team to its first win of the season with a score of 313.
  The Church Hill Stingrays were second with 198 points, and the Johnson City Country Club Swim Team, new to the East Tennessee Summer Swim League, finished third with 113 points.
  In the 10-and-under girls division, 9-year-old McManus edged out Johnson City's Emily McCracken in the 25-yard freestyle with a time of 21.38 seconds to McCracken's 26.32.
  McManus was undefeated in the 25-yard freestyle in the 8-and-under division last summer and looks to be continuing that streak, even though she has moved to an older age group.
  It was a closer race between the same two swimmers in the 25-yard butterfly, with McManus swimming a 30.22 and McCracken 31.87.
  In the 25-yard backstroke, McManus swam a 27.63, defeating Church Hill's Courtney Woods, who had a time of 31.37.
  In boys' competition, Justin Stanley led the way by winning the 14 and under 50 yard freestyle in 41.47 seconds, with Elizabethton's Marcus Hill placing second with a time of 45.31.
   In the 50-yard breaststroke, Stanley finished first with a time of 58.15 and Church Hill's Jacob Kindle came in second in 1:05.84.
  In the 50-yard backstroke, it was Stanley first again, with a time of 57.28, and Kindle next with a time of 58.69.
   Elizabethton returns to Elizabethton High School Thursday night to take on Ridgefields Country Club. The competition begins at 6:30.
