Beverly Kopelic and her Jay M. Robinson swim team have had a stranglehold on the South Piedmont Conference since joining the league.After going unbeaten in the regular season, the Lady Bulldogs won their fourth straight SPC title by 87.5 points (over second-place Cox Mill). But the Concord boys’ claimed the SPC championship over Robinson, 480 to 470, clinching it by winning the meet’s final event – the 400-meter relay.Robinson led the way at the 3A state meet, finishing fourth on the boys’ side and fifth on the girls’ side. Concord’s boys also made an impact at states, finishing sixth.Cabarrus News swim coach of the year: Ray Morgan, ConcordRay Morgan is no stranger to success in the pool at Concord. The 13-year Spiders head coach has won 13 SPC titles (eight boys, five girls).But what turned out to be lucky No. 13 this season may have been the most satisfying for Morgan. The Spiders boys claimed their first league crown since 2008 with only 13 swimmers, combining 18 personal-best times and four school records.Concord should continue strong next season; they are expected to return three of their top swimmers in freshman Sam Jones, sophomore Tucker Wall and junior Justus Cochran.Cabarrus News boys’ swimmer of the year: Griffin Fiedler, Jay M.
