CAC at Carolina Classic Dec2015Carolina Aquatics (CA) of Columbia hosted the 2015 Carolina Classic swim meet this past weekend (Dec 11-13, 2015) on the campus of the University of South Carolina.  Almost 600 swimmers from 13 swim clubs from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia participated, including 35 swimmers from the Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC).  This is short course swimming season, which means the pool is 25 yards long.  The Blatt Pool is a 10-lane venue.
