Each year the Meade County High School swim team hosts their senior night at the Gammon Natatorium on Fort Knox. This year senior night was held on Jan 21, and not only for Meade, but also for the Hardin County teams swimming in the event, and the Fort Knox Eagles team. For three MCHS Swimmers this would be their final time in a home event. Each of the three seniors, Clint Reardon, Logan Rister, and Anthony Slack have all had distinguished careers at MCHS and will leave a legacy for some time after graduation.
Clint Reardon Jr is the son of Clint Sr and Beth Reardon of Payneville Ky. Clint has been on the team for six years and his leadership both inside and outside of the pool has been admirable and humbling for the team. He is involved in his church youth group, Y-Club, Pep Club, NHS, FBLA and FCA. His favorite memory came during his sophomore year at regionals when he swam on the medley team where they placed second but were DQ’d. He also can’t forget the crazy bus rides, shower times, team trips, inside jokes, ice baths and all the amazing times spent with his second family. Clint plans on attending either Asbury or Murry State University to study education, and one day to become a teacher, swim coach, principal, and hopefully a superintendent.
Logan Rister, is the son of Michael and Lisa Rister of Vine Grove Ky. Logan is also a six-year swimmer and was voted Captain by his team this year. He is a member of HOSA, and his famous phrase, “You’re Looking Beautiful” has become iconic for the MCHS swim team. His fondest memory was when he first found out he had made the swim team in the seventh grade, and since that day it has been an incredible journey with his second family. Logan plans to attend a four-year University to pursue Pre-Med and then continue his education to become a Trauma Surgeon one day.
Anthony Slack, the son of Brian and Shannon Slack form Brandenburg Ky. Anthony is also a six-year MCHS swimmer and has shown great talent for teaching and nurturing young swimmers, making him a true asset to the team. His favorite memory was doing a full underwater his seventh-grade year for a “Get out of swim” challenge for the whole team. Anthony plans to pursue a degree in engineering at either the University of Louisville, the University of Kentucky, or Purdue University.
