WILKESBORO — While the results might have been a little bit tighter, it was Elkin High School who found a way to win in Wednesday night’s swim meet at the Wilkes Family YMCA.

The Elkin girls, with nearly half of the entries as their closest competition swimming, eked out a 78-77 win over Surry Central. Meanwhile, the Elkin boys had as many entries as second and third place combined, and dominated for a 111-40 win over Surry Central.

The Buckin’ Elks combined for 189 points in their second meet of the season. The East Wilkes boys and girls combined for 63 points. Starmount brought 14 entries and, while it did not score, the team looked better in every event it entered compared to last week.
