As noted earlier, there were many South Carolina Gamecock swimmers participating in the meet, mostly Freshmen and Sophomore swimmers.   So, CAC second-place finishes by Taylor Steele (100 Breast), Ian Morgan (400 IM), and Harrison Clinton (200 Breast) were to active collegiate Division I and SEC swimmers. Further, there was no age breakout for 13-14 year olds.  So, finishes by Ian Morgan and Harrison Clinton are that much more impressive when you realize they are 14 year-olds competing with 15-and-older swimmers, including the collegiate swimmers.

Long-course swimmers attempt to qualify to participate in the South Carolina Long Course Championships to be held July 20-23 in Columbia, SC.  Right now, CAC has 24 students qualified to compete.  CAC swimmers will have further opportunities to qualify for states (or improve their times) at upcoming meets in Cary, NC and Columbia.

CAC was represented by the following swimmers in the May Breakout meet:  Mason Alford, Olivia Bailey, Cameron Bonham, Abby Boudreau, Allyssa Boudeau, Ryan Boudreau, Mason Bryan, Connor Campbell, Harrison Clinton, Kennedy Cox, John Grey Crosby, Ryan Eldred, Tyler Eldred, Gillian Gatley, Jack Guthinger, Jenna Guthinger, Ella Habib, Kailey Habib, Victoria Marinoff, Casey Mitchell, Ian Morgan, Sophia Murphy, Mia Paglio, Michael Paglio, Christian Patricio, Marissa Patricio, Claire Patterson, Jenn Paul, Allen Poston, Ben Richards, Chandra Robideaux, Camila Sheppard, Taylor Steele, Kyran Vitharana, Saman Vitharana, and Morgan Young.
