NC 14&Under Age Group Champs

Over the weekend of Feb.  23-26, our team had five athletes compete in the North Carolina 14&Under State Swimming Championships in Cary, NC. Our Piranhas finished 22nd out of 55 competing teams from all across the state! For a team of merely five swimmers to accumulate enough points to place in the top half of all competing teams is an incredible accomplishment!

Fiona Arwood:  Two top-8 finishes for 13-14 age group, YMCA National cut in the 200 breast.
