McCallie junior swimmer Sam Powe has been named as the state's 2021 Male Swimmer of the Year at the TISCA State Championships which were held April 24 and 25. Powe was selected by the state’s swimming and diving coaches.

Powe set a state record in the 100 backstroke in a winning time of 47.17. He also won the 200 freestyle in an All-American time of 1:38.03 and was a member of the winning 200 Medley Relay team which recorded a school-record and All-American qualifying time of 1:30.78.

Overall, he set three additional Automatic All-American qualifying times and led the Blue Tornado to a second-place team finish.

Because of Covid-19 precautions, the meet was held in four separate regions across the state, and the event times of each region were compared to determine winners and place finishes.

Sam joins Sean Ryan '10 and Will Jackson '20 as other McCallie swimmers to receive this honor.
