The Cullman Swim Team is off and running ... or kicking and splashing, at least.
Luke Johnson topped the field in three events, and several local swimmers touted two victories to lead the Catfish (1,152 points) to a Cullman Challenge triumph over Jasper (1,022) and Sheffield (557) Tuesday at the Aquatic Center.
Johnson touched the wall first in the 25-yard freestyle, breastroke and backstroke.
Fellow 8-and-under competitor Cooper Ogstad led a group of five two-time winners by taking the cake in the 100-yard individual medley and 25-yard butterfly. He was also second in the 25-yard backstroke.
Bennett Glasscock (15-18) was victorious in the 50-yard backstroke and butterfly to go along with a third-place spot in the 50-yard freestyle.
Jaedyn Martin represented the 8U girls with a tie for first in the 25-yard butterfly, an outright win in the 25-yard freestyle and a runner-up result in the 100-yard IM.
Reese McNeel (11-12) made waves with first in the 100-yard IM and 50-yard freestyle. She also snagged second in the 50-yard backstroke.
Sarah Peel picked right up where she left off with top spots in the 100-yard IM and 50-yard breaststroke.
Johnson, Ogstad, Glasscock and McNeel were also part of relay tandems that swept the medley and freestyle races.
This is the first summer a 6-and-under division has been added.
CST, the reigning small-municipality state swimming and diving champs, will travel to Madison Thursday.
