Last month the Georgetown YMCA Wahoos swim team defended its Grand Strand Swim League title.
Thirty-six swimmers competed in the meet in Myrtle Beach, and all set personal bests.
Swimmers winning all four of their individual events were Catherine Condon, John Grey Crosby, Jonah Crosby and Chrissie Wall.
Quinn Barrier and Caleb Freyer won three of four individual events.
Michael Paglio and Cami Kuenzle both won an individual event and were runners-up in three others.
Other top five finishers league-wide were Abigail Condon, Kelsey Campbell, Kennsley Pope, Grey Barrier, Gracie Pifer, Ella Speir, Briar Long, Greyson Freeman, Hannan Mackey, Abigail Pagett, Andie Powers, Cameron Bonham, Edwin Lopez, Allen Poston, Covey Loftus, Andrew Gwinn, Jonathon Trejo and Dylan Visbaras.
Many of the swimmers are looking forward to participating in the Grand Strand Summer Swim League and will also be competing in the YMCA swim league and USA Swimming.
The Wahoo swim team is currently accepting new swimmers. Being a part of this league involves competitive swimming against other YMCA swim teams across the state and attending the state meets held at the end of each swim season. All members receive ribbons at the meets throughout the season and a medal at the end-of-season banquet.
For more information on joining the team or taking swim lessons contact the YMCA at 843-545-9622 or www.coastalcarolinaymca.org.
