Summer swim is gearing up, but for those of us who have been swimming since last summer, it has been an exciting season both in USA Swimming and High School. Everything culminated this past weekend in the Olympic pool at Georgia Tech with the GHSA State meet. Many of your friends and coaches have been working hard and seeing some real results from their dedication to the sport. Mere fractions of time separated first place from 30th in many of the events; there was some seriously FAST swimming!
This is just a taste of what our team is capable of …
Caitlin Oh, representing the Magnet program of Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs dropped 2.02” to finish 45th in the 200IM with a time of 2:19.90, and dropped .84 in the 100 breast, finishing 32nd with a time of 1:11.38.
Hillgrove’s Hydro Hawks sent 17 swimmers to High School State this past weekend including many from our very own team. Abby Robertson, Lucas Bauer, Brady Fields, Cullen Fields and Jamison Muzzey REPRESENTED, swimming their way into individual events and A Relays.
Cullen, Brady and Lucas all swam on the Men’s 200 Yard Free Relay, dropping 1.84” to earn 9th in the STATE of Georgia. Our same trio finished 10th in the 200 Medley Relay with a finish time of 1:40.20.
