Gold & Gold Select – YMCA 13 & Over State Championships
We had an unbelievable 13 & over State Championship meet from our Gold & Gold Select Group swimmers. We had huge improvement in points scored from the previous year. We placed 8th overall last year (2013) with 685 points, and this year we placed 5th overall with 998 points. We had numerous personal best swims, along with several top 16 finishers.
