But she repeated her two-win performance from last year's state meet and earned All-America consideration with her time in the 200 IM, and also tied a WVU Natatorium pool record.
"I was really proud of myself, I guess, and proud of my team,'' Carr said.
With Carr competing, the Irish placed fifth in the 400 free relay and seventh in the 200 medley relay.
"We have come a long way,'' Carr said, "and we had a lot of difficulties throughout the season with water issues and everything. I'm really happy with how I did given where I am in the season. I guess I kind of met my goals. I'm glad to share it with all my friends. It was such an amazing weekend.''
The only other win from a Kanawha Valley athlete in the girls meet was Hurricane's Madisyn Lyons in the 500 free with a time of 5:12.60, blowing away the rest of the field by nearly 14 seconds.
Meanwhile, the Kanawha Valley accounted for seven victories in the 11 boys events, with Kidd helping account for three of those with a win in the 500 free (4:47.31) and legs on two victorious Patriot relay teams. Kidd also placed second in the 200 free.
Other Kanawha Valley winners in the boys meet included Hurricane's Zach Shurow in the 100 breaststroke (59.22), South Charleston's Adam Poe in the 100 fly (52.91) and Catholic's Nathan Runyon in the 100 backstroke (52.22), where he beat meet favorite Jake Preaskorn of Notre Dame.
The other area event champ was Hurricane in the 200 free relay, with Shurow swimming the lead leg.
There were no records set in the boys meet, but GW came close twice in the relays, with times of 1:40.99 in the 200 medley and 3:19.41 in the 400 free threatening the existing standards of 1:40.65 and 3:19.02, respectively. Junior David Nason also competed on both of those relays (as did senior Josh Barnette) and Nason swam second to Poe in the 100 fly.
Almost forgotten in GW's girls repeat are the previous eight seasons, in which the Patriots finished as state meet runners-up an agonizing six times.
"All those girls who worked so hard to get us to this point,'' Case said, "and didn't get the 'W' are enjoying it now. Our alumni are very supportive of this team.''
Case said a secret to her girls team's success is that the individuals are willing to sacrifice personal glory for the team's greater goals.
"Absolutely,'' she said. "The swimmers I have are really, really good about being team players. Of course, they love the individual glory, but they're swimming for the team to do well even if it's not their favorite event. They're always willing to do that, and it makes a difference. It makes it easier when you have good swimmers and they're all team players.''
