USA Swimming SPEEDO Sectionals
GCSTO swimmers swam up a storm at the meet the weekend of March 22-25 at the University of Akron. With over 80 teams at the meet (from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota & Pennsylvania GCSTO ended up in 15th place overall in combined team totals with the men's team taking home the 6th place position. The cheering for one another was as impressive as was their swimming so they certainly represented the GCSTO tradition well at this meet!
This year, GCSTO had 7 individual qualifiers (30 events), 5 additional relay swimmers, and 8 relays that competed at the meet. Compared to last year, we had 5 individual qualifiers (20 events), no additional relay swimmers, and no relays at the meet, and finished tied for 50th. As well, at this yer's meet our swimmers (and relays) earned 26 LTB's (Life Time Bests), broke 5 team records, achieved 10 Futures Championship cuts and 1 additional Winter Jr. National cut during the 4 day event.
Congratulations to these swimmers and to the senior staff!!!
