The Cougars have become Hancock County’s version of the University of Alabama football team, replenishing their talent base each season while keeping their championship streak alive. Two years ago, G-C won its first-ever HHC meet by 54.5 points, claiming first in just a single event.

Last January, the blue and gold prevailed by 186 points, capturing seven events and placing a Cougar in the top three of all but one race.

Entering Saturday, the reigning champs are seeded first in seven of the 12 events, with those top spots spread among the three relay races and three individual swimmers.

With 2012 state qualifiers Jon McCormick, Austin Wilburn and James Young having graduated, four seniors (Josh Cummins, Patrick Stutz, Cody Wilburn, Bailey Willoughby) as well as two talented juniors (Nathan Graber, Drew Logan) have continued G-C’s assembly line of pool sharks.
