Dalton swimmer Trey Davis does well at national event

Dalton High School swimmer Trey Davis competed in the three-day 2013 Can-Am Games, which was put on by the International Paralympic Committee in Minneapolis.

Davis competed Thursday through Saturday, in two events each day, and swam in the top heat in each event. He had a preliminary swim each morning and then was placed based on his time. Davis was born with a chronic bone deficiency and had his left leg shorter than his right. Following an amputation at the age of 11, he started swimming with a prosthetic leg.

Davis competed on the Catamounts’ swim team as a freshman this past winter.

On Thursday, he swam the 100-meter freestyle and finished sixth place with a time of 1 minutes, 8.79 seconds. He also swam the 50 butterfly (third, 33.54). On Friday, he swam the 50 freestyle (fourth, 29.81) and 100 backstroke (fourth, 1:22.94). On Saturday, he swam the 50 backstroke (third, 35.58) and 100 butterfly (fifth, 1:38.95).

The Can-Am Games are an annual event consisting of the United States’ and Canada’s Paralympic teams.

“There were more, though,” said Dalton assistant coach George News, who traveled to the event with Davis. “The Russian Olympic team was here. It was a pretty big meet. They had teams from Mexico, Brazil. I don’t even know them all.”
