Barracudas wrap up regular season, groom for championship

from staff reports
The Elizabethton Barracudas ended their regular season Tuesday night in Rogersville in a four-way meet that included Legion Pool and Ridgefield Country Club.
Team scores were not available after the meet. The Barracudas will finish their season at the Kingsport Area Summer Swim League Championship Meet Saturday, Aug. 2.
The meet takes place at the Church Hill Municipal Pool and begins at 10 a.m.
"We have a good chance of finishing third out of seven teams at the championships," says Barracudas coach Jonell Johnson.
"We've beaten Church Hill, Ridgefield Country Club and Legion Pool this summer. The Aqua Jets and Rogersville greatly outnumber our team, so there isn't a chance of beating them this year," Johnson continued. "Johnson City is an unknown since we've never competed against them. But my swimmers have made great improvement and are getting really competitive. They have a chance to do very well at this meet."
