CAC swimmers dive right into Long Course season

The Southern Marlins Racing Team (SMRT) of Charleston hosted the 2018 SMRT “May the Fourth be with You” Invitational this past weekend at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Pool in Charleston.

Coastal Aquatic Club and 8 other swim clubs participated, with 41 swimmers representing CAC. This meet marked the start of the Long Course season as swimmers will now compete in 50-meter (Olympic) pools at both indoor and outdoor facilities with the State Championship Meet to be held in Columbia at the end of July.

The competition pool had 8 lanes. By the end of the weekend, 28 CAC swimmers (or, 68% of the meet team) combined for 77 TOP 8 finishes (referred to as making a Final or an A-Final).
