Shorthanded CAC makes nice strides at state meet

CAC Short Course States 2016South Carolina Swimming hosted the annual Short Course Championship meet this past weekend in Greenville, SC.  This year, 779 swimmers from 24 swim clubs qualified to participate.

Locally, Coastal Aquatic Club (CAC) had 22 swimmers qualify but due to injuries and schedule conflicts, only 13 swimmers ventured to the Upstate for the meet. Additionally some swimmers aged up to the next age group, thus lowering the qualifying times and reducing the number of events for which they qualified.

John Grey Crosby, for example, celebrated a birthday just days before the start of the meet.  This moved him from among the leaders in the 13-14 age group to a young 15-year old in the 15-18 age bracket.

Over the 4-day competition, 3 CAC swimmers earned top 10 finishes: Mason Bryan (2nd in 100 Back); Olivia McGonigal (4th in 100 Back; and Sean King (6th in 100 Back; 7th in 50 Free; 9th in 100 Fly).

The 400 yard Medley Relay teams took 10th Place in ages 15-18 for both Girls (Kater Wolff, Taylor Steele, Kennedy Drew, and Jenn Paul) and Boys (Casey Mitchell, Liam Zevgolis, Mason Bryan, and John Grey Crosby).

Further, the following swimmers qualified for consolation finals (places 11-20) in the 15-18 age category:  Mason Bryan, John Grey Crosby, Jenn Paul, and Taylor Steele.  Taylor Steele (50 Breast, 100 Breast) and Jenn Paul (200 Butterfly) also established new CAC team records during the meet.

The following swimmers have qualified for the more-exclusive Sectional meets to be held in March 2016:

* Age Group Sectionals (age 13-14) – Sean King.

* Senior Sectionals (age 15 and older) – Mason Bryan, Andre Fachin, Olivia McGonigal, Kater Wolff, and Liam Zevgolis.   Additionally, 2 CAC swimmers who swim collegiately (Adam Dear, East Carolina University; Tyler Eldred, Limestone College) will represent CAC at Senior Sectionals.

* And, in a still more exclusive meet, Mason Bryan is qualified for NCSA Junior Nationals in Orlando, FL in March 2016.

CAC swimmers participating in the State Championship team were Mason Bryan, John Grey Crosby, Kennedy Drew, Sean King, Olivia McGonigal, Casey Mitchell, Jenn Paul, Summer Ratley, Taylor Steele, Ana Wolff, Jane Wolff, Kater Wolff and Liam Zevgolis.

CAC will host the Palmetto Championship Lower State Meet at the North Myrtle Beach Aquatics and Fitness Center during the weekend of March 18-20, 2016.
