Erwin Ortiz is a senior for the Roberson swimming team.

History will show that Erwin Ortiz only swam one year for Roberson.

And it’s shaping up to be a year unlike any other that has preceded it.

Ortiz’s performances in the 100-yard butterfly (53.86 seconds), 200-yard freestyle (1:44.60) and 500-yard freestyle (4:47.78) are the best ever recorded by a Rams boys swimmer. Along with those school records, he has Western North Carolina’s fastest time this season in the 200-yard individual medley (2:01.94).

Ortiz has also been a leg on the area’s three fastest relays — the medley relay (1:43.04), 200-yard freestyle relay (1:33.80) and 400-yard freestyle relay (3:26.24).

Ortiz, who moved from Mexico to Western North Carolina last summer, was the champion of last month’s Ironman meet in Skyland. He will be back in the Zeugner Center pool for Thursday’s Buncombe County meet.
