CAC swimmers race rivals, storms at Palmetto Invite

While most of South Carolina was under rain showers this weekend, club swimmers met in Columbia for the Palmetto Aquatics Spring Invitational meet on the campus of the University of South Carolina.

Eleven swim clubs from across the Palmetto state participated, including 29 swimmers from the Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC). By mid-race on Sunday afternoon, heavy rain and lightning forced the cancellation of the remainder of the meet and disappointed swim families followed those same storms back to the Grand Strand.

In the shortened meet, 15CAC swimmers (over half the team) earned at least one TOP TEN finish (the University of South Carolina pool is a 10-lane pool):

* Ian Morgan: 1st in 400 IM;1st in 1,500 Free (i.e., The Mile); 2nd in 200 IM; 2nd in 400 Free; 2nd in 200 Fly; and 9th in 100 Free.
