Gold Medal Places Second at the State Age Group Meet with Best Ever Score

Michael Chasson

The Gold Medal Swim Club finished an amazing Age Group State meet with a second place finish behind SAC, who has 550 swimmers to our 90 swimmers. We also finished ahead of much larger teams like Rio and Phoenix and Westside. When I started this team around five years ago, I didn't envision this type of finish at the State level. Thank you to all the swimmers and parents and Coach Jens and Coach Kyle for an amazing weekend.
