ROCKY MOUNT - The Franklin County Family YMCA Riptide Swim Team held a home invitational swim meet that hosted 5 other YMCA swim teams on Saturday 01/27/18.
The competition is getting fierce as the championship swim meet quickly approaches early March. Despite the competition the Riptide swim team came away with first place.
There were a lot of time improvements with some stand outs being 7 year old Peyton Conley who dropped a total of 11 seconds in three events, 9 year old Josie Gilley who dropped a total of 28.5 seconds in three events and 8 year old Avery Windsor who dropped over 30 seconds in her three events.
Making time improvements is harder to do as the season goes on, so to have big improvements like this is a reflection of the athlete’s hard work at practice and the coaches’ dedication to the success of the swimmers. The Riptide swim team has achieved a lot over this season and is looking to continue that trend.
