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.
