Cole Kuster qualified and competed in the USA Swimming Futures Meet, which was held from August 2-6 in Geneva, Ohio. Competing against qualified swimmers from New England and much of the east coast, Cole performed very well and swam in the Championships Finals in all of his events. Cole swam a best time of 4.06.52 in the 400 Free, which got him 6th place overall -- finishing only .6 seconds from 3rd place. An equally impressive swim was his 800 Free in which he swam a best time of 8.29.81 to secure 5th place overall -- his time was .82 away from second place. The level of competition provided for exciting and close races in all of the Championship Finals. Cole also took 12th place overall in the 1500 Free. Cole has qualified to compete at Junior Nationals in December which will be held in Knoxville, TN. Congratulations Cole!!!
