The Commerce swimming season got started with multiple top finishers at the Nov. 2 Habersham Central Rocking Raider Meet. 

The girls' team finished seventh out of 15 teams. 

"I think this type of showing in our first meet of the season says a lot about the talent we bring with us to the pool," head coach Rebecca Zellner said.

Lauren Massey swam a state-qualifying time in the 100-yard freestyle. 

"It was very exciting, considering she was just shy of the time last year," Zellner said.

Massey also finished second in the 200-yard freestyle. 

Ansley Ayers finished second in the 200-yard individual medley and third in the 100-yard backstroke.

Madison Epps added a seventh-place finish in the 100-yard freestyle and eighth in the 50-yard freestyle. 

Katherine Garrison finished 12th in the 200-yard individual medley and 24th in the 100-yard freestyle. 

The medley relay and 200-yard relay teams finished third.
