The Suwannee Swimming Club is working hard this year. The club went to a huge swim meet in Moultrie, Ga. recently. There were 1,856 girls entered from 10 different clubs and 1,506 boys from 10 different swim clubs. The Suwannee swimmers did well. The competition was tough but there were many great individual performances.
