Several personal bests by McMinn United swimmers carried them to a major upset of a private school powerhouse.

McMinn United’s high schoolers edged out Chattanooga’s Notre Dame 121-115 on Monday at the Athens-McMinn Family YMCA.

“Many of these races were won by fractions of a second,” said Swim Team Coordinator Katy Coffey. “Our high schoolers came to win. I am incredibly proud of their performance. We had some outstanding individual races. Our relay teams were phenomenal.”

The McMinn United middle schoolers won their meet as well, 151-10, due mainly to Notre Dame having a small middle school team.

McMinn United competes next in the Ray Bussard Invitational at the University of Tennessee on Saturday, Dec. 14. McMinn United’s next home meet is 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, against Cleveland at the Athens-McMinn Family YMCA.
