By Annette Gobel

November 10, 2015—Arnold High School is a little less obscure now in the world of Florida swimming. The Panama City Beach-based high school led the Bay County contingent at the FHSAA 2A State Championship meet on November 7, 2015. Arnold High School girls took home the overall second place trophy while the boys took home the overall fourth place trophy. These are the highest team placements in the history of the team.

The Arnold boys 200 medley relay team placed second overall in 1:37.45 only behind Tampa’s Jesuit. Arnold girls also placed second in 1:49.08 behind Gulliver Prep.

The Arnold boys 400 freestyle relay team finished fifth overall in 3:16.77, a new school record. Arnold girls 400 freestyle relay finished third in 3:36.83.

These strong team finishes combined with several top 16 individual finals swims made other teams sit up and take notice.

Other Bay County teams finished as follows:
Mosley Girls- 10th
Mosley Boys-15th
Bay Girls- 21st
