Gold & Gold Select – YMCA 12 & Under State Championships
We had an unbelievable 12 & under State Championship from our Gold & Gold Select Group swimmers. We had a huge improvement in points scored from the previous year. We placed 10th overall last year (2013) with 584 points, this year we placed 7th overall with 740 points. We had numerous personal best swims, along with several top 16 finishers.
It was so awesome to see our swimmers do so well at State Champs in more events. The Gold & Gold Select Coaching Staff is so proud of our swimmers that excelled at this level and at such an important meet for our team.
