The Greenwood Gators recently traveled to Pickens, South Carolina July 19-20 to compete in the Carolina YMCA Swim League Championships. While the first day was a cold and rainy July Saturday, complete with a power outage, the Gators had several great swims.
Sunday offered sunshine and a chance to place as one of the top three teams overall. The Girls placed Third and the Boys placed Second. The Gators were awarded the Second Place Overall Award.
Five individuals placed in the top three and made the podium during the individual awards ceremony. Jordan Ek won First Place in the Girls 6 and Under, while Elainey Chancey took First Place in the Girls 9-10. Lydia Zeller finished in Second Place for the Girls 9-10. Among the boys, Garrick Moore took Second Place in the Boys 7-8 and Garrett Driscoll tied for Third Place in the Boys 7-8.
There were over 250 swimmers from 10 YMCA teams around the state competing in the two day event.
The Gators have some time off before returning to practice in mid-August to train for the Winter Season. For information on the Gators call 864-223-9622 or visit www.greenwoodgators.org.
