Regionals is the first level meet in the Illinois Swimming Championship Series. Our 53 Championship Team Members qualified for Regionals and/or the additional Age Group State and Senior State Championships.
We took 18 boys (2 relay only swimmers) and 15 girls (1 relay only swimmer) to Bloomington to compete in the Regional Championships. The 30 individual competitors all contributed points to a 3rd place finish for PAWW. Our boys had the highest point total with 992 with our girls adding 554 to combine for the 3rd highest team total of 1546 points.
Relays did not count towards team points totals. However, we couldn’t be more proud of our 12 under swimmers.
