Crooked Creek Crocs capture SKSC championship

CORBIN — Special to the Times-Tribune

The Crooked Creek Crocs of London captured their first-ever Southern Kentucky Swim Conference Championships this past Saturday at the Russell County Natatorium in Russell Springs.

The Crocs came into the meet with a perfect 5-0 record and were determined to bring the title back to London.

The meet began with the Crocs sweeping the first five relays and earning silver in the 15-18-year-old mixed relay. The 9-10 mixed medley relay team of Elle Hays, Katie-Anne Brown, Mattie Lewis and Gabe Francis set a new conference record with a time of 1:14.78, as did the 11-12 mixed relay team of Emma Ivey, Keller Brown, Caroline Francis and Parker Herren with a time of 2:13.41. The previous record for that event was 2:33.41 set by Lakewood Marlins in 2008. 

The Crocs set an impressive 24 conference records. The team also brought home eight individual high point winners — 6 and under boys and girls high point winners Joaquin Pauig 43 points and Tyra Fields 40 points, 7-8 boys Spencer Hays 54 points, 9-10 girls Katie-Anne Brown 73 points, 11-12 boys and girls Keller Brown 75 points and Emma Ivey 75 points, 13-14 boys Bretty Walter 75 points and 17-18 girls Stacy Wilk 75 points.

Both the men’s and women’s teams came home with championships titles.  The final score had the Crooked Creek Crocs scoring (2383.5) points, while Cedar Rapids Dolphins (1887) and Lakewood Marlins (1744.5) followed. The Crocs are coached by Caroline Akers, Jarod Martin, Shelley Nunley, Kristin Wyatt and Kyle Yeager.
