Decatur’s Katey Rowden recorded her best finish in three trips to the University Interscholastic League’s state swim championships Saturday.
The DHS junior took 10th in the 50 freestyle, swimming 24.9 in the consolation finals.
“I’m very proud of her,” said Decatur coach Brooklyn Huffman. “She placed higher than she ever had at state.
“She had a very good weekend.”
Rowden swam a 24.89 in the prelims of the event and narrowly missed making the championship finals. Frisco’s Courtney Nelson snagged the final spot in the finals with a 24.79.
Rowden finished 12th in the 100 butterfly, swimming 59.79. She swam a 1:00.33 in the prelims of the event.
“She swam better Saturday (in the finals),” Huffman said. “She looked stronger.
“She’s got one more year. Hopefully next year, she makes the [championship] finals and can medal.”
