The GSC took 39 swimmers — the largest group of swimmers club has ever traveled to the meet — and defeated the Aurora Swim Team by 35 points to win the meet for the first time ever with a combined team score of 582. GSC has been part of Southeast Alaska Swim Team, which has won the meet the last four years. SEAK was a combination of the swim teams from Craig, Ketchikan, Sitka and Juneau, but GSC chose to break off from SEAK this year for various reasons. There were two team records broken over the weekend. Kelly broke Jesie Lewis’ 1995 team record in the 13-14 girls’ 50 freestyle, and Mia Ruffin broke her own team record in the 11-12 girls’ 200 breastroke. GSC is two for two in state championship meets so far this season.
