Senior Max Plumley had a phenomenal performance at the Ohio High School Athletic Association boys swimming state championships. He finished in second place in the 100-yard freestyle and in fourth place in the 50-yard freestyle.

Plumley was also the anchor for the 200-yard freestyle relay and 400-yard freestyle relay, which placed sixth and fifth respectively at state. 

The sprint specialist was critical to the Comets’ success all year, leading them to a Greater Miami Conference championship, district runner-ups, and sixth overall finish at state.

He had a phenomenal performance at the GMC Championship, where he was awarded co-swimmer of the meet. Plumley won the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly. Additionally, he anchored the GMC-winning 200 and 400-yard freestyle relays.

The senior cemented himself in the record books with the 16th-fastest 100-yard freestyle time in OHSAA history. Plumley closed off his accomplished high school career as an eight-time GMC champion and a nine-team state finalist.
