Decatur senior Katey Rowden wrapped up her career in the pool Saturday with a fifth-place finish in the consolation finals of the 100 butterfly at the University Interscholastic League championships.

Rowden finished in 59.62 seconds at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center.

“I swam my absolute best,” Rowden said. “I laid it all out.”

Rebecca Brandt took the gold medal in 56.13.

Rowden turned in a 59.56 in prelims. The top eight times advancing to the finals in the event were under 59 seconds.

It was Rowden’s fourth time at the state meet.

“That was all God. I wouldn’t have the confidence to compete without him,” Rowden said.

“I also had awesome coaches who supported and helped me, a family that believed in me and teammates that also supported me.”
