McLeod Mako Sharks Win Championship
On Saturday morning I was able to watch youth swim teams from across Florence compete in the championship meet of the Florence Summer Swim League. Excitement and energy levels were high as the eighty (80) member McLeod team, led by Coaches Dawn Walker and Jason Chatlosh, swam their way into first place at Francis Marion University’s Smith Center aquatic arena. I was also able to talk with Jennifer Calcutt, McLeod Aquatics Director, about the swimming program and how it helps our youth.
A key to this league is sportsmanship and family participation with McLeod competing against swimmers from Florence Family YMCA, Oakdale Country Club and Florence Country Club. Participants ages ranged from 4 to 18 promoting youth fitness and positive family fun.
Congratulations team. We look forward to next year.
