O’Dell leads way for 7 CAC swimmers to state podium

South Carolina Swimming welcomed swimmers from 27 Swim Clubs to its annual Long Course Championship meet this weekend at the Carolina Natatorium on the campus of the University of South Carolina. Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC) had 27 qualifiers, and 19 swimmers competed in the meet.

Swimmers age 10-and-under used the timed-finals format during the afternoon session. Older swimmers (ages 11 and up) had a preliminary qualifying session in the morning and a Finals session in the evening including the top 10 qualifiers from the morning session. However, thunderstorms forced a cancellation of Sunday evening’s finals. So, for those events, the times in prelims served as the final results.

Jordyn O’Dell, who swims collegiately at Marshall University, took 1st place in the 100 Back to post the only win for the swim club. Jordyn also swam in the consolation finals for the 100 Fly and 100 Free.

Taylor Steele made the podium with a 3rd place in the 100 Breast. And, by doing so, she qualified for the U.S. Summer Junior National Meet. Summer Junior Nationals is the highest national meet for swimmers age 18 and under. Beyond Summer Junior Nationals, a swimmer can qualify for the U.S. Open and the U.S. Olympic Trials. At present, Taylor is 0.7 seconds away from qualifying for the U.S. Open and 1.8 seconds away from qualifying for the Olympic Trials.

Harrison Clinton also posted 2 podium finishes (2nd place in 200 Fly and 3rd place in the 100 Breast) to go along with a 4th (200 Breast) and two 5th place finishes (100 Fly and 1,500 Free). Additionally, he was 7th in 200 IM and 10th in 400 IM.

Ian Morgan (7th in 400 IM; 10th in 1,500 Free), Tyler Eldred (9th in 100 Breast), and Ryan Boudreau (9th in 400 Free) posted TOP 10 finishes, as did a pair of CAC Relay Teams: The Boys 800 Free Relay (Tyler Eldred, John Grey Crosby, Ian Morgan, and Casey Mitchell), 6th Place; and the Girls 400 Free Relay (Olivia McGonigal, Jordyn O’Dell, Taylor Steele, and Jenn Paul), 6th Place.

The following swimmers qualified for consolation finals: Casey Mitchell (all events entered – 200 Free, 100 Breast, 200 IM, 200 Back, 400 Free, 100 Back); Taylor Steele (400 IM, 50 Free; 200 Breast); Olivia McGonigal (50 Free, 100 Back); Tyler Eldred (50 Free, 100 Free); Ian Morgan (200 IM, 200 Fly); John Grey Crosby (100 Fly); Cameron Bonham (400 Free); Harrison Clinton (400 Free); and Kater Wolff (100 Back).

CAC was represented by the following swimmers at Long-Course States: Cameron Bonham; Ryan Boudreau; Harrison Clinton; John Grey Crosby; Ryan Eldred; Tyler Eldred; Joe Guthinger; Ella Habib; Olivia McGonigal; Casey Mitchell; Ian Morgan; Sophia Murphy; Ethan Nechemia; Jordyn O’Dell; Jenn Paul; Summer Ratley; Chandra Robideaux; Taylor Steele; and Kater Wolff.

As the long-course swimming season winds down, CAC swimmers will take the month of August off and resume club swimming after Labor Day. During this period, swimmers 7th grade and up will train and compete for their respective high schools.
