Here comes ABSC! Starting this weekend, ABSC’s 14&under swimmers will journey down to Georgia Tech and race the fastest competition from around the state of Georgia! But this year, they’ll face a brand new challenge.

ABSC has enjoyed massive success at the 14&under state meet over the last few years, both in short course and long course! Over the last 4 years, ABSC hadn’t placed lower than 3rd in the medium-sized team division… that is until last summer!

At the long course meet last summer, ABSC moved for the first time into the “Large Team” division at the state meet. By surpassing the 200 swimmer mark, ABSC was reorganized up a level, and had to compete against the largest teams in the state! Despite the new challenge, ABSC still placed 6th in the new division last summer! Now, ABSC swimmers will go at it with the large teams for the first time in Short Course!

Over the Course of the weekend, ABSC will have some key swims to keep an eye on (NOTE** All following data comes from a preliminary psych sheet. A new one with updated times will be posted on Tuesday, so some of this information may change).
