Mosley’s swimming and diving teams recently completed another memorable season, the Dolphins’ boys finishing as Class 2A runner-up for the second consecutive year.

Leading the way was Auburn commitment Michael Duderstadt who set five new county records, won state titles in two events and earned All-American status in the 100 breaststroke and 200 I.M. as well as All-American Consideration in the 50 freestyle. Duderstadt currently is the fastest high school swimmer in the country in the 100 breastroke.

Also noteworthy was Jonathan Ratliff earning All-American Consideration in the 500 freestyle while setting county records in two events. The 200 medley relay of Michael Whitehead, Duderstadt and Ratliff and Casey Pridgen rated All-American consideration and also set a county record, and won the state championship for the third year in a row.

Other Mosley athletes establishing new county records were Lindsey Gurganus in the 200 freestyle, the girls 200 medley relay of Taylor Wilder, Alysiah Stock, Kyla Hallam and Gurganus and the boys 400 freestyle relay of Ratliff, Shane Young, Whitehead and Duderstadt.
