Senior Morgan McAtee has been swimming since she was just six years old, and she has been making notable memories in the sport ever since. “My favorite memory of swim has to be all of the trips to big meets that Coach Lewis only takes the top swimmers.” Morgan has practiced hard to earn her spot on the swim team and become one of the team’s top swimmers.

In 2016, Morgan, along with her sister Raegan McAtee and then sophomore Taylor Norwood, got the opportunity to compete at the State swim meet in St. Peters after the Poplar Bluff swim team won their Conference meet. McAtee, a then junior, swam the breastroke, her best swim. Coming in 17th place, Morgan made an outstanding accomplishment knowing her competition was the best of the best.

“We have a really strong team this year. We lost Hailee Dragon last year, but we got a lot of good freshman this season.”, Morgan explained about the current season. And she wasn’t incorrect, the Mules won their first meet against their biggest competition in the area, Cape. At the first home swim meet of 2017, the Mules destroyed the competition, Farmington, ending with a team total of 132 compared to the Knights overall 26.

The Mules swam at one of the nicest Rec Centers in the Southeast this past Saturday, January 7th at the CoMo Invitational meet at Mizzou. Morgan and Taylor Norwood both qualified for State in their individual events along with both relay teams making the State cut.
