In April, Swecker broke Pruitt's Nashville Scrapper Relay record of 4:31.1 set in 1967 by completing the race in 4:27.12. Pruitt, then an athlete at Beebe before attending the University of Arkansas, wanted to meet Swecker and congratulate him for breaking the record. Swecker is currently a freshman track and cross country athlete at UALR, and he is the current Lake Hamilton record-holder in the 800-meter run and won the Class 5A 1600-meter run last spring.
