Swim Team News

The Mid-Carolina Swim Team traveled to Topspin Racquet and Aquatic Club in Lexington on August 25th to compete against Airport, Brookland-Cayce, Newberry, and host team, River Bluff. The pool at Topspin is a 25 meter pool as opposed to a 25 yard pool, so some adjustments by swimmers had to be made. MC swimmers had some very good swims and dropped time on many events. Several swimmers achieved State Consideration times and were very close to Automatic State Qualifying times. Congratulate these swimmers on a great meet!

State Consideration Times Achieved:

Braedon Connelly (JR): 200 Freestyle (3rd place finish)

Jorja McGee (FR): 200 Freestyle (1st place finish)

Cassidy Price (JR): 200 Individual Medley

Grant Smith (8th): 100 Butterfly (3rd place finish), 100 Backstroke (3rd place finish)

Rhett Smith (FR): 500 Freestyle (1st place finish), 100 Breaststroke

Notable time drops:

Braedon Connelly had personal best times in the 200 Freestyle (-9.09 sec.) and 100 Breaststroke (-2.17 sec.).

Piper Haskett (7th) cut 2.07 seconds on the 50 Freestyle and 5.7 seconds on the 100 Breaststroke since last week’s meet.

Grant Smith had personal best times in the 100 Butterfly (-3.4 sec.) and 100 Backstroke (-8.11 sec.).

Rhett Smith had a personal best time in the 500 Freestyle (-57.55 sec.)
