It was a very successful summer for the Piranhas Swim Team! All of our swimmers trained very hard and all of their work paid off at the many championship meets to close out the season including Regionals, 14&Under State Champs and YMCA Nationals.
Our annual USRY Regional Meet in Hickory brought great success for several swimmers hoping to earn cut times for different championship meets. A handful of swimmers in our 12 & under age group achieved 100% best times on their way to achieving several new JO cut times. Our older swimmers also fared very well, using this meet as preparation for upcoming meets at the end of the summer.
