Wire-to-Wire Win for the Flying Fish

It proved to be a little bit easier for the Daniel Island swim team in this year’s Championship Meet of the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA), as the Flying Fish cruised to a 387 point victory over the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales. In contrast to 2023, when the meet came down to the final relay in a 14.5 point win for Daniel Island over second place Snee Farm, the Flying Fish cruised from wire to wire in this year’s meet. The Snee Farm Swim Team finished third with 2526.5 points, followed by three teams separated by only 10.5 points: the Newington Tiger Sharks (2310.5), the Hobcaw Marlins (2304), and the Parkshore Piranhas (2300).

Three swimmers captured triple crowns in this year’s City Meet by winning three events: Northbridge Terrace’s Saylor Hood (9-10 girls butterfly, backstroke, and individual medley), Crowfield’s Joshua Bornfleth (11-12 boys freestyle, backstroke, and individual medley), and Sha-Mel-Lon’s Carley Foust (13-14 girls freestyle, butterfly, and individual medley).

Snee Farm’s Avery Frece was the only swimmer to set meet records in two events: the 15-18 girls freestyle and butterfly. New City Meet records were also set by Northbridge Terrace’s Harbor Hood (7-8 girls breaststroke), Hobcaw’s Leah Carrico (9-10 girls breaststroke), Crowfield’s Brody Haefner (9-10 boys breaststroke), James Island’s Holden Jickling (9-10 boys backstroke), Daniel Island’s Ellie Chalupsky (15-18 girls backstroke), Hobcaw’s Adair Shaw (15-18 girls individual medley), and Longpoint’s Stephen Russell (15-18 boys backstroke). Chalupsky and Russell actually broke CCAA records twice: first as backstroke leadoff swimmers in the medley relay and then again in their individual events. The 11-12 girls free relay team from the Summerville Y (Gabrielle Burns, Jayla Muldrow, Luna Armijo-Lagares, and Mia Stephen) also established a City Meet record.

Over 800 swimmers from seventeen teams participated in this year’s Championship Meet. We appreciate the work that the CCAA’s volunteers did in making the City Meet run so smoothly. See you next year!

Approximately 850 swimmers from the seventeen teams of the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association will gather at the North Charleston Aquatic Center on Sunday, July 7, for the 2024 CCAA Championship Meet, affectionately called the City Meet.

The meet will begin with the CCAA’s youngest swimmers, the 7-8 and 9-10 age groups on Sunday morning. Competition will continue on Sunday afternoon for the 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18 age groups.

Daniel Island’s First-Ever City Meet Championship!

The Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) has only its second first-time team champion in the last 35 years. The Snee Farm Swim Team has dominated the CCAA since 1989, winning the team championship in all but three years and the COVID season of 2020. There is a changing of the guard in the CCAA in 2023, as the Daniel Island Flying Fish wrapped up their first-ever City Meet championship with a 14.5-point victory over Snee Farm. The outcome of the meet was in doubt until the final event, the 15-18 boys freestyle relay.

Daniel Island finished the meet with 2832.5 points, outpacing Snee Farm’s 2818 points. The Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales finished third with 2567 points, followed by the North Charleston Barracudas (2465) and the Parkshore Piranhas (2147).

Only four CCAA records were established during the meet, all during the second day. The 15-18 mixed medley relay team from Snee Farm (Ann Thompson, Avery Frece, Kyle Hertwig, Jackson Allison) set the first CCAA record of the meet, breaking their team’s own record set last year. Sean Groeber from the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales also broke his meet record in the 13-14 boys  breaststroke, followed by a record-setting performance in the next event (15-18 girls breaststroke) by Lindsay Burbage of the Sha-Mel-Lon Stingrays. The 15-18 boys freestyle relay from the Newington Tiger Sharks (Parker Azevedo, Will Gross, Carson Owens, and Jack Jonas) closed out the meet with a record-setting performance.

Northbridge’s Groeber was also one of this year’s Triple Crown winners, adding the butterfly and individual medley titles to his breaststroke championship. His teammate Logan Patterson swept the 11-12 boys butterfly, backstroke, and individual medley events. Double event winners included Daniel Island’s Charlotte Good (11-12 girls butterfly and backstroke), Newington’s Marlie Crosby (13-14 girls freestyle and breaststroke), Hobcaw’s Elliott Murphy (13-14 girls backstroke and individual medley), Snee Farm’s Avery Frece (15-18 girls freestyle and individual medley), and her teammate Kyle Hertwig (15-18 boys freestyle and butterfly).

The CCAA congratulates all of its swimmers and coaches on another outstanding season and thanks all the volunteers who made the regular season and the City Meet so successful!
