The Georgetown USA/YMCA Wahoos grabbed third place at a USA Grand Prix Meet last weekend.
There were 29 personal best times set by the Wahoos 12 and under swimmers.
John Grey Crosby was too fast (11/12 USA state cut times) to swim in any events except the 50 breast, which he won and earned a state cut time in it.
Even though Crosby will be turning 13 before the State Meet he already has some times that qualify him with 13/14 state cut times.
Crosby has been working hard at practice with the coaches to improve his breaststroke and his hard work is paying off.
Michael Paglio, 11, had a great meet, winning three individual events and he has already earned several 11/12 USA State Cuts.
Other Georgetown swimmers finishing in the top fvie in their age groups were: Jackson Robino, Mia Paglio, Briar Long, Emma Sullivan and Chloe Kuenzle.
Top 10 finishers were: Abigail Condon, Edwin Lopez, Cameron Bonham, Hannan Mackey, Peyton Little and T.T. Tupacz.
The Georgetown Wahoos are hosting their first YMCA meet of the season Saturdayat 9:30 a.m. at the Georgetown County Family YMCA.
The YMCA teams attending this meet are: Beaufort, Summerville, Sumter and Hartsville. The Wahoos have 44 swimmers taking part in the meet.
