Sunday, August 14, 2011

Cape Girardeau's Susan Beth Scott won her second gold medal at the Pan Pacific Para Swimming Championships in Edmonton, Alberta.

Scott was part of the victorious 400 medley relay, joining Anna Eames, Jessica Long and Mallory Weggemann.

Scott then took silver in the 100 freestyle with a personal-best time of 1 minute, 1.62 seconds. She added bronze medals in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke.

"Susan Beth has stepped up to every race and raced like the champion she is," national team coach Dave Denniston said in a release. "Even more impressive, she is really becoming a leader for our U.S. women's team."

The 19-year-old has won two golds, a silver and three bronzes so far. She completes competition today in the 400 freestyle relay.
