CAC swimmers make big splash in Grand Prix finale

CAC-Grand Prix Championship Meet March 2017Over this short-course swim season, the Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC) has participated in five Grand Prix meets in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Mount Pleasant. This past weekend, the Championship Meet of the Grand Prix series was held at the outdoor pool of the I’On Club in Mount Pleasant.

To be eligible to compete, a swimmer must not have a state qualifying time for a particular event (such as the 50 yard freestyle).  There were 125 swimmers in the water, including 25 CAC swimmers.   For the weekend, 20 CAC swimmers (80% of team) combined to produce 65 TOP 6 finishes, including 6 wins (Morgan Young, Logan Mendieta, Cameron Bonham, Christian Patricio, and Olivia Bailey), and a total of 33 TOP 3 (i.e., Podium) finishes.  Here’s a look at TOP 6 finishes (in the 6-lane pool):
