Congratulations to everyone who competed in the NBAC 10 and Under Championships this past weekend. MAC had 3 swimmers who took home blue ribbons. Gaby Collins won the 7 year old girls 25 breaststroke; Sasha Shandrenko was the winner in the 6 year old girls 25 breaststroke; and Jackie Greeves finished first in two events - the 8 year old girls 100 and 200 freestyle.
