South Point Stallions masterful at Region 3-4A meet

The South Pointe Stallions capped off the regular season with wins in both the girls’ and boys’ divisions in the Region 3-4A Swim Meet at the Rock Hill Aquatics Center Saturday.

The Stallions won both divisions in dominating style. Saturday’s performance followed a regular season that saw South Pointe go through the region without a loss.

“I was very pleased with the way both of our teams performed today,” said South Pointe head coach Adam Rainey, who is in his eighth season. “We have 33 swimmers on our team, and all of them saw action today. We are a young team, but we have improved as the year has gone along. It was a total team win.”

Rainey is looking for a strong showing from his team in Saturday’s state meet in Columbia.

“We had quite a few of our relay teams and individuals qualify for the state meet. I am very pleased with this, and I feel like we will have a good showing at the state meet.”

In the girls’ division, South Pointe won four individual events and two of three relays. Maddie Neil won two individual events for the Stallions, while Sydney Hartzog and Brooke Anguiano each won one. The only other double winner in the girls’ division was Jessie Durflinger of York.

In the boys’ division, the Stallions won six individual events and two of three relays. Michael Ellenburg, Saddoud Maurillo, and Scott McKay each won two individual events for South Pointe. Orion Griffin of York was the only other local individual winner. He won one event.

The York Cougars finished second in both the girls’ and boys’ divisions. Richland Northeast was third in both divisions, while Ridge View was fourth in each division.
