Snee Farm: 23 Championships in 26 Years

After a three-year absence, the Snee Farm Swim Team returned to the top of the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) with a wire-to-wire victory in the 2014 City Meet. Snee Farm cruised to a comfortable victory over three-time defending champion Coosaw Creek, 2949.5 to 2580.5. The Daniel Island Flying Fish finished in third place again, followed by the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales and the Shadowmoss Sharks. Snee Farm has now won 23 championships in a 26 year stretch, including 22 in a row from 1989 through 2010.

Three swimmers finished the meet's final session as triple crown winners: Fort Johnson's Mary Alice Dupree (13-14 girls freestyle, butterfly, and individual medley), Coosaw Creek's Micah Bohon (15-18 girls butterfly, backstroke, and IM), and her brother and teammate Jeremiah (15-18 boys butterfly, breaststroke, and IM). The session's only other multiple event winners were two teammates from the Shadowmoss Sharks: Ethan Thrasher (13-14 boys freestyle and butterfly) and Justin Lawrence (13-14 boys breaststroke and IM).

Coosaw Creek won two overall age group championships in the final session - the 15-18 girls and 15-18 boys. Daniel Island finished as 13-14 girls champions, and Shadowmoss was the champion of the 13-14 boys. In a testament to their incredible team balance, Snee Farm finished as overall meet champions for both girls and boys. Final meet results can be downloaded here.

The CCAA honored 65 graduating seniors, who participated in our league for a total of 614 years. The Carolyn Y. Keller Scholarship, presented to a rising senior, was awarded to Trace Hall from the Brickyard Barracudas. The CCAA Team Sportsmanship Awards were presented to Shadowmoss (Red League), Longpoint and Sha-Mel-Lon (White League), and the Jewish Community Center (Blue League).

The CCAA thanks all of the volunteers who made the City Meet and the regular season possible. The CCAA also gives special thanks to the City of Goose Creek and its Recreation Department, along with the Stratford High School swim team, for helping us make a smooth transition to a new host pool at Crowfield.

Day 2 Ends with Snee Farm Still on Top

The second day of the 2014 championship meet of the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) wrapped up with the Snee Farm Swim Team still in the lead. After closing the morning session with a 217.5 point lead over the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales, Snee Farm widened its lead over Northbridge to 411.5 points, 1868.0 to 1446.5 The next three teams remained the same from the morning session: the Daniel Island Flying Fish, the Coosaw Creek Crocodiles, and the Dunes West Swordfish.

The afternoon session on Saturday consisted of the CCAA's 9-10 year old swimmers. Two athletes became the City Meet's first triple crown winners: Snee Farm's Sophie Frece (butterfly, backstroke, and individual medley) and Dunes West's William Slowey (backstroke, breaststroke, and individual medley). James Island's Ryder Putnam was also a multiple winner, capturing the titles in the freestyle and butterfly.

Snee Farm won its third overall age group championship during session 3, adding the 9-10 girls to the 7-8 girls and 11-12 boys. The Newington Tiger Sharks finished as the 9-10 boys overall age group champions.

The 2014 City Meet will wrap up on Sunday with the 13-14 and 15-18 age groups. Warmups will begin at 2 PM, with a 3:40 start of competition.

Snee Farm Extends Lead

The Snee Farm Swim Team continued its quest toward another Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) championship during the second session of the 2014 City Meet. Snee Farm holds a 217.5 point lead over the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales (1274.0-956.5). The Daniel Island Flying Fish made a charge into third place at 932 points, followed by the Coosaw Creek Crocodiles (826.5) and the Dunes West Swordfish (753.5).

The second session of the City Meet featured the CCAA's youngest swimmers, the 7-8 year olds. After four 11-12 swimmers were multiple event winners, only one 7-8 swimmer won more than once: Coosaw Creek's Thayer Tavormina (butterfly and backstroke). Snee Farm's girls were the overall age group champions, while Daniel Island claimed the 7-8 boys age group title.

The third session on Saturday afternoon will be for the 9-10 year olds, while the 13-14 and 15-18 swimmers will compete on Sunday afternoon.

The City Meet is Here!

The Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association's annual Championship Meet, also known as the City Meet, is right around the corner. Almost 1100 CCAA swimmers will be competing over the course of three days of fast and furious swimming.

Because our traditional host, the Jewish Community Center, is unavailable due to construction, we will have a new format this year. The meet will kick off on Friday, July 18, with individual and relay competition for the 11-12 age group. Warmups will begin at 4:00 PM (schedule can be downloaded here) and competition will begin at 5:40. The meet will be held at the Goose Creek Community Pool at the Crowfield Golf and Country Club at 300 Hamlet Circle in Goose Creek (map). No parking will be available at the pool for the general public. Parking will be available at Stratford High School (map), with shuttle buses available to drive swimmers and spectators to and from the pool. Swimmers may be dropped off at the pool. All seating will be on bleachers; no chairs will be permitted on the pool deck. There is no charge for admission, but there is a $5 parking fee.

The meet will continue on Saturday morning with competition for the 7-8 swimmers. Their warmups will begin at 8:00 AM, and the meet will start at 9:40. The CCAA's 9-10 swimmers will warm up at noon on Saturday, with a meet start time of 1:40 PM. Finally, there will be a combined session for 13-14's and 15-18's on Sunday, July 20. Sunday's warmups will start at 2:00 PM, and the final session will begin at 3:40. 

The Coosaw Creek Crocodiles enter the City Meet as three-time defending champions. Coosaw Creek ended Snee Farm's twenty-two year reign at the top of the CCAA in 2011 and finished first again in 2012 and 2013, winning by 21.5 points last season. Snee Farm finished in second place in 2013, followed by the Daniel Island Flying Fish, the Shadowmoss Sharks, and the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales.

Meet results and scores will be posted on the CCAA Facebook page, and the CCAA Twitter feed (@swimccaa) as they come in. Complete results will be posted at the end of each day's events. Good luck to all CCAA swimmers and teams!
