Goodman sets new ACHS swim record

Raiders junior swimmer Bennett Goodman set a new boys ACHS team record on Tuesday, Dec. 14 at the Bedford YMCA, against Jefferson Forest (JF and Lynchburg Christian Academy (LCA), besting his previous record by more than two seconds in the 100 yard Butterfly. Goodman’s and ACHS’ new mark is now 1:06.97.  His old time was 1:09.17.

“I am very very excited to know this early in the season that I broke my old record,” said Goodman. “Last year was a hard swim year with Covid.”  

“I know this year I had to get in the pool and work hard at practice to achieve the goals of better times,” he added.
