Week 6 Female Athlete of the Week: Ashlyn Hunt

Credentials: Lafayette High junior swimmer Ashlyn Hunt won both the 200 individual medley and the 100 butterfly at last week’s Acadiana area high school swimming league meet. Hunt had a time of 2:15.66 in the 200 individual medley and a winning time of 1:01.36 in the 100 butterfly.

Her performance helped the Lady Lions finish second in the overall girls team standings and first in the combined boys and girls team standings.

“She’s been swimming since she was about 10 years old,” Crawish Aquatics Club coach Thomas Clavier said. “She’s short, only about 5 feet tall. She’s a lot more of a powerful, explosive type swimmer than your average swimmer.”

Background: Hunt won the Division I state championship in the 100 butterfly as a sophomore with a time of 56.36. Prior to that tournament, she was the member of the 2014 Southwest Louisiana All-District team, All-League team and All-Star Team.

“The butterfly is her specialty,” Clavier said. “It’s pretty unusual to see (underclassmen) dominate (100 butterfly) like she did the last two years. She’s got a chance to make it three years in a row.”
