Outstanding Swimmer: Colin Bone, Catholic High
More fast times and individual records made Bone a logical choice to claim top honors on the All-Metro team for the third straight season. The junior helped the Bears to Capital City Swim League and Division I state titles. He also swam automatic All-American qualifying times in two events: 45.06 seconds in the 100-yard freestyle and 1 minute, 38.80 seconds in the 200 freestyle. Bone set state records in both the 100 and 200 freestyles in the Division I preliminary and finals. He also set a CCSL record in the 100 freestyle and posted the state’s top time of 20.91 seconds in the 50 freestyle while leading off Catholic’s record-setting 200 freestyle relay. The 50 freestyle time was fast enough for All-American consideration status.
Won the Division II title in the 100-yard butterfly (53.86 seconds) and was third in the 500 freestyle.

By winning three Division I titles during a five-year period, Logsdon’s Bears cemented their status as a consistent state power.
