Cameron Holcomb headlined another solid performance by Atomic City Aquatic Club (ACAC) swimmers at the Southeastern Championships held in February. The meet is reserved for the best swimmers in the region, and Holcomb reached finals in four of his seven individual events (1,000-free, 500-free, 100-free and-50 breast) and had top 12 finishes in all events he swam.
He improved on his best times in every event he swam. He also made sectional cuts, an even more impressive accomplishment, in the 200-free and 500-free. He took home the most individual points for the team.
Others contributed. ACAC had 48/89 best times, for a 53.93 percent improvement rating.
Colby Maupin had top eight finishes in two individual events (50-fly and 50-free). The 10-and-under boys free relay (Jake Mason, Vidar Hondorf, Alton Alexander, Colby Maupin) placed eighth and their medley relay placed fourth.
Sydney Goodman finished fifth overall in her 50-breast- her first ever Southeastern Championship swim. Kent Eldreth took 11th in the 100-breast and Chandler Ott finished 13th in the 100-fly. Sidney Ragsdale took 16th in the 100-back.
Of special note, a number of swimmers joined Holcomb in making new sectional cuts. Jake Mason qualified for the 500-free, 50-fly, and 100-fly. Vidar Hondorf qualified in the 50-breast. Tiffany Taylor made her cut in the 100-back. Stevie Logan moved forward in the 200-back. Alton Alexander qualified in the 100-breast. These swimmers will be moving forward to the sectionals.
ACAC also had a competition this past weekend.
