2013 North Carolina SCY Championships
By Harry DeLong

The 2013 North Carolina Short Course Yards swim meet is complete. The meet was held on 6 & 7 April at the Triangle Aquatic Center (TAC) in Cary. TAC is a new pool complex with outstanding facilities for use by swimmers.

A bit new this year were volunteer timers from local High Schools and a local swim team. We hope to develop this more in future swim meets. Thanks to the All American Swim Shop , located in the Aquatic Center, for providing two $25.00 gift certificates for our volunteers and the Raleigh KAST-A-WAY swim shop for a $25.00 gift certificate, also for the volunteers. Also thanks to Golden Corral for providing $25.00 gift certificates for each High Point Winner. The Combined Team/group winner was Raleigh Area Masters. The women also took took first place while the Cape Fear Aquatic Club (CFAC) - Wilmington, NC took first place for men.

We had a total of 197 swimmers registered with 180 participating. Interestingly, there were more men competing than women with 69 women and 111 men. The competitors came from 29 swim workout groups / swim teams.
