For Claire Mowery, her results stood out again for the Washington-Liberty High School swimmer in the Liberty District championship meet.

In addition, Mowery swam on two third-place relays in the meet and helped the W-L girls team finish third in the meet.

The victory in the 50 free was Mowery’s third in her high-school career. She will swim in college at East Carolina University.

In girls diving, Washington-Liberty junior Ellie Joyce defended her Liberty title, winning with a 426 score. Erin Wills was fifth for W-L and Libby Moir sixth.

The Washington-Liberty boys placed sixth in that meet, led by Tommy Weber’s win in the 500 free (4:43.99) and third in the 50 free and a third by Eli Martin in the IM and a sixth in the back.
