KY State qualifiers

KY State Championships

These meets are only two months away with Carmel, SKY, Race to State, and the Owensboro Last Chance the remaining qualifying opportunities. The above link shows 12 swimmers currently qualified. In the next 6 weeks, I am confident we can double that number and greatly expand the range of qualified events for current qualifiers. These two meets are our team championship meets and represent a significant but attainable level of proficiency for all RACE swimmers who consistently embrace the preparation process.
