The Georgia Zone Team successfully defended their title at the 2013 Southern Zone Championship Meet in Greenville SC last week. The team won the boys title by over 130 points and got significant help from their disabled athletes. That formula allowed them to take the overall title for the third time in the last four years. SCAT sent two of the 48 swimmers in the state selected for the meet.
Congratulations to Tan Dunn (2nd time at the Zone meet) and Arion Solomon.
Highlights certainly included Tan Dunn and his relay teammates swimming to 1st place finishes in the 200 and 400 Free and Medley Relays!! In addition to those 4 1st place medals – Tan also stepped up to the podium to receive Bronze medals in his 100 Back and 50 Free!
Arion Solomon had a video perfect, crowd screaming finish in the 11-12 boys 200 Medley Relay. Arion swam the anchor leg and brought his team from a second to first place finish in the last 20 meters of the race! Arion also found his way to the podium for a Silver medal in the 400 Medley relay as well.
Congratulations to both Tan and Arion for representing Georgia and SCAT at this prestigious meet!
