We would like to congratulate our 2019 Age Group Team swimmers who competed in the Indiana Age Group LC State Championships this past weekend! It was a true team effort, as our swimmers put up over 90% best times and scored enough points to place 16th in the State. New cuts made at this meet included new state times for Angelo Lawrence, Jonah Brandon, Kayla Fischer and Clara Brandon. New Zone (AAA) times were earned by Vincent Howe and Henry Lyness. Also, a shout out to the 11-12 Boys relay team of Howe, Lyness, Cox and Cuadros for breaking the CGAC club record in the 200 freestyle relay with a time of 2:00.30. The coaches are very proud of these swimmers and are excited to see what they will do next! Please be sure to congratulate the following swimmers on their outstanding performance: Clara Brandon, Jonah Brandon, Grace Clarkston, Cameron Cox, Anthony Cuadros, Mathew Cuadros, Anna DeLuna, Grace DeLuna, Rebekah Ebert, Izzie Ferguson, Kayla Fischer, Santana Gonzales, Brianna Henselmeier, Evan Hernandez, Max Hite, Vincent Howe, Rachel Ingle, Aiden Lavery, Angelo Lawrence, Aidan Lyness, Henry Lyness, Camron Mazdai, Mallor McDonald, Ellie Nguyen, Katherine Nguyen, Lara Phipps, Gabe Sunga, and Brooke Trammell.

Good luck to the CGAC National Team of  Gracie DeLuna, Ethan Martin and Tony Gipson as they head out to compete this weekend at the Futures Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina.

From Coach Amy:


1.)Divisionals: The FINAL Divisional entry was submitted last night and an email was sent out prior to the final submission with swimmer's events. Requests for event changes that were received prior to the 8pm deadline were made. Relays have been changed to allow swimmers who did not swim on a state relay the opportunity to participate. However, relays are not final and may be changed based on swimmers'  performance.The meet packet is available on both the CGAC website and the Indiana Swimming website.

Ongoing Updates & Reminders

Fitter and Faster is coming to Indianapolis for a Summer Swim Camp Series that includes four weekends of two-day swim camps PLUS a video filming and analysis day! This camp will take place at the iconic IUPUI Natatorium in August and September.


Each of the weekend camps will go into detail on one stroke with an Olympian that specializes in that stroke. Then, participants have the opportunity to sign up for the video analysis where they can have one or all 4 strokes analyzed by Olympic coach Todd Schmitz, who was MISSY FRANKLIN'S coach!


This would be a great opportunity to prepare for the short course season.
