Last weekend, the GCYW USA/YMCA Wahoos, along with over 200 other swimmers, took part in the MBR Lowcountry Palmetto USA Championship Meet.
Hurley Cribb, John Grey Crosby, Jonah Crosby, Edwin lopez and Michael Paglio all won or placed in the top three in one or more events.
Swimmers placing in the top 10 in preliminaries and/or finals were: Cameron Bonham, Darrian Gardner, Peyton Little, Covey Loftus, Hannan Mackey, Allen Poston, Benjamin Richards, Emma Sullivan, J.J. Tupacz, Tee Tupacz, and Chrissie Wall.
These swimmers, as well as Kelsey Campbell, Andrew Gwinn, Briar Long, Junah Long, Janie Morris, Abigail Pagett, Alex Pelham, Rowan Pelham, Kennsley Pope, Hunter Shull and Reynolds Tiller earned personal best times at the meet.
Paglio earned a state cut in the 200 individual medley.
Jonah Crosby and Mackey each picked up an “A” Time.
Sullivan added more BB Times to her list, and is very close to several state cut times.
The Crosby boys, Lopez, Little, Mackey, Paglio, and Sullivan had an outstanding meet performance.
The team will begin their long course USA season by traveling to Charleston later this month for another USA Meet.
During May they will be traveling to Hartsville for a YMCA Meet and possibly Spartanburg for an additional USA Meet.
The Wahoos are always looking for new swimmers. For more information on joining the team or taking swim lessons contact the YMCA at 843-545-9622 or www.coastalcarolinaymca.org.
