2018 Age Group State Championships Meet Recap!

2018 Age Group State Championships Meet Recap


CONGRATULATIONS to all of SWAC’s swimmers, parents, and coaches on a fantastic performance at last weekend’s Age Group State Championships Meet! 


SWAC scored 1146 points to finish in 3rd place overall, tying our best ever team finish.  Our point total is also a new team record for the spring meet and broke the old mark by nearly 200 points! 


For the 3rd consecutive Age Group State meet SWAC was the top placing team from Northeast Indiana, and this time around we were the only club from Fort Wayne to place inside the top 10.


SWAC had 26 different athletes earn top 8 podium finishes (43 individual events and 11 relays total), and we had 4 different athletes combine to win 9 individual State Championships!


This meet was the best overall performance SWAC has ever put together, and a fitting culmination to a great short course season.  Congratulations to the entire team on all of our success this season, and we look forward to seeing everyone back in the spring!
