Undaunted is a term that describes this group of upbeat personalities. The College of Charleston swim club did not fold when the campus pool closed a couple of years back. Instead, and true to form, this group found an alternative location that would permit them to continue what they love best — swimming and competing.
No home pool simply means every meet is a travel weekend. The bright side is they get to go places and see the best the region has to offer. This past weekend was a short trip up the road to our neighbors in Columbia. USC has a fine natatorium and that only added to a fun weekend. Two club members were able to post personal bests as they all fight for a chance to qualify for the season ending meet.
