Willette to swim in eight events

The Rockdale Riptides will only have one swimmer at this weekend's Eastern Section of the Southern Zone 14-under Sectional Championship swim meet, but the team will still be well-represented.

Delaney Willette will swim in eight events at the Greensboro (N.C.) Aquatic Center starting today and running through Sunday.

Willette, a 12-year-old, is scheduled to swim in the 400-individual medley today; the 200-freestyle, 100-individual medley and 200-backstroke Friday; the 100-freestyle, 50-backstroke Saturday; and the 50-freestyle and 100-backstroke Sunday.

The meet will include swimmers from Georgia and eight other states, including Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, West Virginia and the Florida panhandle.
