CAC dominates as host of Coastal Classic Invitational

Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC) hosted its 10th annual Coastal Classic Invitational Swim Meet this past weekend at the North Myrtle Beach Aquatics and Fitness Center. More than 500 swimmers participated, including teams from Aiken, Charleston, Clemson, Columbia, Florence, Sumter and Myrtle Beach.

With the conclusion of High School swimming, swimmers now focus their training and competition with their Swim Clubs. Over the next 9 months, swimmers will attempt to meet time standards to qualify for the Short-Course State Championship Meet (Greenville, SC in February) and Long-Course State Championship Meet (Columbia, SC in July).

Coach Fabio da Silva’s philosophy is to encourage swimmers to compete in all strokes and to watch their strengths develop naturally over time. The meet results illustrate this strategy as many swimmers won multiple events in one stroke (say, the Breaststroke) while concurrently posting TOP FIVE finishes in other strokes or races.

By meet’s end, 25 CAC swimmers combined for 89 TOP FIVE finishes including 17 first-place finishes. Taylor Steele recorded 3 first-place finishes, including a new South Carolina state record in the 100 Breast with a time of 1:01.67. Other event winners include Ian Morgan, Harrison Clinton, Casey Mitchell, Molly Tate, Yuri Costa, John Grey Crosby, and Jenna Guthinger. TOP FIVE finishes are listed below:

• Ian Morgan: 1st in 200 IM; 1st in 500 Free; 1st in 200 Free; 1st in 200 Fly; 3rd in 200 Back; 3rd in 200 Breast; 3rd in 100 Free; 4th in 100 Breast; 4th in 100 Back; and 5th in 100 Fly.
