Greenville Splash Comes in First Place at the Greenville Splash Invitational

Greenville Splash successfully hosts a long course meet with 113 swimmers from Texas, Florida, Indiana, Georgia and our neighbors in South Carolina. We had 34 Greenville Splash swimmers participate by swimming in the meet and many other teammates and friends that volunteered to time. We also have recruited a few more swimmers for our next meet!!

The following swimmers participated: Bill Robertson, Sara Bopp, Allan Byer, Susan Demere, Nick Elliott, Ginnie Freeman, Chris Harrigan, RIck Haverland, Janice Hebel, Danie Hynum, Christina Jeffrey, Tim Johnson, Mark Kothe, Doug Long, Troy McAlister, Will McWhorter, Carolyn Moore, Cheryl Quinn, Michael Roka, Tyler Scott, Neal Vestal, Tom Watson, John Yennie, Steve Stuart, Taylor McAlister, Kate Trimmer, Leslie Scott, Jenni Russell, Dwight Schaeffer, Chris Gibbs, Johnny Thon, Michael Mauhar, Andy Satterfield, Klaus Pless. Our new recruits are Rick Dhillon and Blake Leche

We had 4 first timers: Ginnie Freeman, Troy McAlister, Dwight Schaeffer and Kate Trimmer. This was their first swim meet ever and we really could not be prouder of their accomplishments! Kate and Ginnie said they had a great time and can't wait for the next meet! We also had some ex-collegiate swimmers and other ex-swimmers that came back to a meet after a long hiatus. Many of our swimmers also had remarkable drops in their times from last year's meet including Allan Byer who dropped 15 seconds in the 100 free.

We want to thank Karen Alexander for being the meet director. Also a big shout out to Jim Keogh and Will McWhorter for officiating! Kudos to the following for all their contributions to making the meet a huge success: Sara Bopp, Susan Demere, Janice Hebel, Tim Johnson, Steve Stuart, and Carolyn Moore. We especially appreciate our friends and teammates for their help timing and being a part of the team.
