After watching rival Hickory sweep the first-ever all-county swim meet last year, St. Stephens made the best of its second chance.
The Indians, who were girls runners-up and third in boys competition last year, took both titles at the second Catawba County swimming championships Tuesday at the Hickory Foundation YMCA.
The performance came as a surprise to their coach.
â€śWe didnâ€™t think we had won the girls, and we didnâ€™t think we had a shot with the boys title at all,â€ť said Indians coach LeeAnn Privett. â€śThey just swam really well. We werenâ€™t expecting this.â€ť

CHARLOTTE â€” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney's offseason workload should be significantly less stressful than a year ago when it comes to re-signing free agents.
With 57 players either under contract or set to be tendered â€” including 20 of 22 projected starters â€” the Panthers are in pretty good shape personnel-wise as they look toward a promising future behind quarterback Cam Newton.
They don't have nearly as many unanswered questions as a year ago.
