Summerville – The fall sports campaign has come to an official end at Northwood Academy and the focus quickly turns to the upcoming basketball season.

In wrapping up the fall season, it is notable that the school’s swim and cross country teams were able to compete in the SCISA state championship events in both sports.

The Class AAA swim championships were held in mid-October in Augusta, Georgia. Northwood Academy sent representatives from their boys and girls programs.

The girls team ended with a seventh-place team finish in the AAA standings. The school’s 200-yard medley relay team posted a strong fourth-place finish in the finals. Members of that unit included Ellie Sineath, Grace Miller, Victoria Cook and Jillian Ahrens.

Sineath also made the finals of the 100-yard butterfly and finished eighth. Miller finished fourth in the 100-yard breaststroke and was 10th in the 200-yard individual medley. Cook swam in the finals of the 200-IM and finished eighth while placing 11th in the 100-yard backstroke.

Jordan Sharpe finished 14th in the 200-yard freestyle finals. In other relays, the team was sixth in the 200-yard free relay and was eighth in the 400-yard free relay.

The boys team posted a ninth-place finish in the team standings. The relay teams placed eighth in the 200-medley and eighth in the 200-yard free relay.

Comprising the relay team were Brandon Schwartzberg, Peter Ahrens, Shiv Patel and Scotty Parker.

Schwartzberg also finished 12th in the 100-yard freestyle and took 16th in the 50-yard freestyle.

In the state cross country championships for SCISA, the Northwood boys team finished ninth in the team standings while the girls team was 10th.

Freshman Scotty Parker was the top finisher for the boys team, coming across the finish line in 49th place. Freshman Anthony Palmer was one spot behind and junior Alec Schreier was 51st. Kaleb Newman rounded out the scoring in 64th.

Also competing in the meet were David Stanton, Anderson Calhoun and Christian Herrman.

The top finishing girl was freshman Stephanie Simpson in 51st position. Sixth-grader Victoria Powell finished 59th and seventh-grader Layla Valipour was 60th. Juniors Emma Graham and Grace Stanton finished 63rd and 64th, respectively. Freshman Chloe Mott and junior Candace Herrman also ran in the meet but did not figure into the team scoring.
