The Georgetown High School swim team began its season by taking part in the annual Ripley’s Invitational in Myrtle Beach at Pepper Geddings on Aug. 23 and the North Myrtle Beach Invitational on Aug. 30.
Hurley Cribb represented the team as the captain. Cribb and Catherine Condon earned Bulldogs of the Meet. Allen Poston and Darrian Gardner earned the Sportsmanship Recognition.
The Spirit Award went to Taylor McConnell and Kadie Davis.
Cribb and Chrissie Wall were captains for the second meet of the season. Bulldogs of the Meet were Dylan Visbaris and Andrew Gwinn; while Abigail Pagett and Kara Casselman earned the Sportsmanship Recognition.
Cribb has a consideration state cut time in the 100 fly and is very close to several other consideration state times.
He placed fifth in the 100 fly. Cribb also earned a personal best and placed eighth out of 29 swimmers in the 100 free. These are major improvements for Cribb from last season.
Three other GHS swimmers have consideration state cut times: Condon (50 free), Gardner (50 free), and Wall (50 free and 100 fly).
Earning personal best times in one or both meets and improving each week were the following swimmers: Gwinn, Casselman, Sydney Robertson, Condon, Gardner, Cribb, Visbaris and Poston.
The Bulldogs will travel to Coastal Carolina University on Sept. 6 to swim in a meet hosted by Socastee High School.
