Draughn senior boys swimmer Jaxon Smith is The News Herald’s Farm Bureau high school county athlete of the week for Dec. 14-19.

Smith was part of four event wins Friday at the Valdese Aquatic Center as the Wildcats boys and girls teams both opened the 2020-21 season by topping rival East Burke.

Smith’s night individually was highlighted by his new school record of 1:48.67 in a victory in the 200 freestyle event. He started the evening with a win in the 200 medley relay (1:56.31) with teammates Trey Jensen, Sean Owens and Jake Hudson and ended things with a victory in the 400 free relay (4:09.44) with Owens, Hudson and Brady Carswell. In between, Smith also claimed the 100 backstroke (55.22).

The News Herald will recognize an athlete of the week throughout the 2020-21 school year.
