Abaco Swim Club had a busy January, travelling to Nassau to attend Swift Swimming’s 25th Anniversary Meet Jan 16-17 and BSC Insurance Management Invitational Jan 30-31. Abaco Swim Club took small teams to both meets but had great swims with many personal bests and high point winners in different age groups.
Jewel Pinder, Maddox Pinder and Kate Sims attended with Swift Meet with Jewel having great swims and securing her top position in the 11-12 girls in 400 free and 200 back. Jewel currently has four CARIFTA qualifying times and is one of the top 11-12 girls in the country.
Maddox, just like his sister Jewel, had a great meet and secured himself the high point runner-up trophy in 8 & unders.
Kate Sims swam a personal best 800 free which qualified her in the event for Nationals in June. She then participated in Marathon Bahamas the next day, showing her great talents in both swimming and running.
Ryan Knowles, Kiana Hicks, Summer Sands, Carter Albury, Roman Pinder, Brayden Dam, Taylor Albury and Katie Sands attended the Barracuda Meet later in the month.
