GTSA Kicks off Long Course Season

                This past weekend GTSA competed in their first Long Course meet of the season.  The meet was held Friday night and Saturday morning at The North Shore Pool in St. Petersburg, FL.  Although there was significant rain Friday night, that didn’t slow down GTSA at all!  The two day meet had 70 different events.  GTSA had a swimmer finish in the top 3 in 27 of those events, which is an astounding 39% of the races.    The amount of best times is almost impossible to calculate due to the fact that so many swimmers were competing in their first ever long course meet.  The coaching staff was very impressed by the team’s racing, especially considering that the team has yet to practice long course.  GTSA will return to action next on Memorial Day weekend in Naples, FL.
