Nikki Fulps, John Mainland, Taylor Hinson, Kathryn George, and Haley George represented
“All of these kids did well at this meet, with every one of them having improvements in some of their events. There have been a lot of the normal summer time distractions recently, and they have dealt with them and are swimming through them.” Coach Todd Griffin commented. “We improved in a lot of areas of stroke development and race strategy that we needed to improve in, and we identified other areas that we can now focus on, while continuing to reinforce what we have already learned. I’m proud of all of them and how they are working.”
Those placing in the Top 8 of their age group were:
Nikki Fulps: 10&Under 50 Meter Breaststroke
