SwimCats have strong performance at first meet

Published 3:33 pm Tuesday, November 27, 2018

The SwimCats competed in their first meet on Friday, Nov. 16 in Thomasville at the Friday Frenzy #1. 

Coaches Chambers and Campbell were very proud of the team. Since some of the swimmers had to leave early to go to the Football playoff game, many swam events that they usually do not swim, and due to a power outage, the meet was not completed so some swimmers were not able to swim all events in which they were entered. 

However, many swimmers  were able to swim their events and score points for the team.
