In the boys 200 medley, Knox Central High School placed sixth with a time of 2:08.58 followed closely by Corbin with a seventh place finish and a clocking of 2:12.55 to finish the event.

Knox Central's Jessica Pope claimed first place in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:12.82, narrowly defeating Louisville Assumption's Annabelle Greseth.

Barbourville's Alexander Phipps placed first in the boys 50 freestyle with a total of 14 points, while Corbin's Harrison Reedy placed fifth in the event.

Knox Central's Jessica Pope claimed first place honors in the 500-freestyle with a time of 5:50.76 and a 14 point finish in the event. Corbin's Kyra Meece and Emma McGraw finished fourth and sixth in the event respectively.

Corbin's team of Caleb Parker, Harrison Reedy, William Reedy and Jacob Fuller placed first in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:41.41 and a total of 28 points.

The Corbin Redhounds finished the day in first place in total combined team scoring with 278 points. Each of Corbin's boys and girls teams finished the afternoon with a third place ranking.

Corbin coach Kyle Yeager said he was pleased with his team's effort afterward.

“As a first year program we are going up against some very tough schools," Yeager said. “A lot of these schools have swam in state or have come close to winning the state," “Whereas we, as a first year team, are holding up well, we've had several swimmers actually finish in the top 10 of their events," he added.

The next regional swim meet will be held on February 14th-15th at the Stivers Aquatic and Wellness Center.

  • A Well-Deserved Honor

    It was a spring night in May 1981 about eight or so miles south of Corbin.
    A crowd of folks were there — mothers, fathers, children and more.
    Musicians had prepared for a night of music at a concert open to the public.
    The venue was the Frontier Village Park, and many people were in attendance.
    Deputy Joseph Russell Jones was one of many law enforcement personnel assigned to security detail that day.
