East Coweta's Hogsed off to fast start

East Coweta senior Nick Hogsed is off to a fast start for the Indians’ swim team.

In just the first meet of the season Saturday at the Steve Lundquist Pool in Jonesboro, Hogsed earned state qualifying times in both the 500-yard freestyle and 200-individual medley.

It’s just the beginning of a busy week for the East Coweta swimmer.

This afternoon in a ceremony at the school, Hogsed will sign a letter of intent to Division I swim power University of Arizona.

On Saturday, East Coweta swimmers also return to the pool for the annual LaGrange Invitational at the Mike Daniel Recreation Center.

Hogsed finished last weekend’s season opener by posting Class AAAAAA’s fastest time so far in the 200IM (2:00.09) and the second fastest 500 freestyle of the early season in 4:42.34.

The East Coweta senior helped the boys team to a sixth-place finish overall.

Hogseed will head to the state meet in February for the fourth time in his high school career.

A year ago, Hogsed qualified for all eight individual events at the state meet and also helped the Indians set qualifying marks in both relays.

Hogsed scored points for the Indians during last year’s state meet with a sixth-place finish in the 500 and seventh-place finish in the 200.

Hogsed knocked 11 seconds off of his previous state time in the 500, finishing the race at in 4:36.13. He turned in a time of 1:44.05 in the 200 finals at last year’s state.
