It would be an easy assumption that “1” is Kendall Dodgion’s favorite number.
In her last three swimming meets, Dodgion won six out of six events.
This past Wednesday in the Ohio River Conference of Aquatics (ORCA) meet at Shawnee State University, the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers’ sophomore stellar swimmer won the 200-meter Individual Medley and the 100-meter Freestyle races.
Patrticipating teams included Portsmouth, Portsmouth West, Northwest, Fairland and Wheelersburg.
At a meet on Jan. 15 in Chillicothe, Dodgion swam against teams from Piketon, Northwest, Fairland, Portsmouth West and Wheelersburg.
The results were the same as she splashed her way to first place finishes in the 200-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard Freestyle.
Dodgion had a meet on Jan. 8 in Chillicothe against Portsmouth, Northwest, Piketon, Portsmouth West and Wheelersburg and won the 50-yard Freestyle and 100-yard Freestyle.
