GYSSA Championships

Over the weekend of March 3-5, our team travelled to Greensboro NC to compete in the 2017 GYSSA League Championships, going up against YMCA teams from our region. After three days of tough racing, our team emerged in 4th place out of 13 teams! This is a great accomplishment for our staff and swimmers! Across the weekend we saw tough, hard racing from a large range of our members, from one of our youngest (6-year old boy Logan Porter) to a few of our National team member veterans!

24 out of our 36 competing swimmers contributed to our point total—a true TEAM effort! Below is a list of swimmers who scored points for the team throughout the weekend.
