CAC swimmers good hosts at Palmetto Championship

cac-palmettochampsThe Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC) hosted the 2016 Lowcountry Palmetto Championship Swim Meet this past weekend at the North Myrtle Beach Aquatic & Fitness Center.

The meet was open to all youth swimmers who did not qualify for the multi-state sectional meets for their individual events (sectional qualifying times are faster than state championship qualifying times).   These sectional qualifiers have been in action in recent weeks in Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA. CAC was represented by Mason Bryan, Adam Dear (East Carolina University), Tyler Eldred (Limestone College), Andre Fachin, Sean King, Olivia McGonigal, Kater Wolff, and Liam Zevgolis.

CAC welcomed the following swim teams to the Grand Strand:  Florence Area Swim Team (FAST), South Marlins Racing Team (SMRT) of Charleston, Georgetown YMCA Wahoos, and the YMCA of Columbia.   With a smaller number of swimmers this year, the meet followed the timed-finals format.  That is, swimmers posted a single time per event and those times were used to determine top finishers in that event. The following CAC swimmers won their respective age-group races in the following events:

• Connor Campbell: 50 Fly; 100 Fly; 50 Back; and 100 Back.
• John Grey Crosby: 100 Fly; 50 Free.
• Ryan Eldred:  100 Fly.
• Carly Belle Jackson: 100 Back; 100 Free; and 200 Free.
• Will Jackson: 100 Breast; 50 Free; 100 Free; 100 IM; and 200 IM.
• Sean King:  100 Breast; 200 Back; 200 IM; 400 IM; 200 Fly; 100 Free; 200 Free; and 500 Free.
• Ty Kinner-Costello: 100 Free.
• Catherine Miller:  200 Fly; 50 Free; 100 Free; 200 Free; and 500 Free.
• Casey Mitchell: 100 Breast; 200 IM; 400 IM; 200 Fly; 100 Back; 200 Free; and 500 Free.
• Jenn Paul:  100 Fly; 200 Fly; 200 Back; 400 IM; 100 Free; and 500 Free.
• Camille Shklar: 100 Fly.
• Taylor Steele: 100 Breast; 200 IM.
• Ana Wolff:  200 Breast; 100 Back.

Carly Belle Jackson (10 and under girls), Connor Campbell (11-12 boys), Sean King (13-14 boys), Jenn Paul (15 and older girls) and Casey Mitchell (15 and older boys) earned recognition for the highest points earned in their age group category for the entire championship.

With the completion of the short-course swimming season (25 yard pools), the focus now shifts to the long-course season (50-meter pools).  CAC plans to compete in long-course meets in Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, and other locations while working to qualify swimmers for their events in the South Carolina Long Course Championship meet to be held later this summer in Columbia.
