Last weekend, the Sharks Aquatic Club competed in the North Carolina Swimming Short Course Senior Championship meet held in Cary, NC. Former Head Coach, Dave Messenger, returned to the pool deck to guide the Sharks to a successful weekend of swimming. “We had a great weekend, and had a lot of fun. It was good seeing the Sharks swim fast again!” said Coach Messenger. The sharks had 7 senior swimmers with the necessary qualifying times for the meet. Junior National qualifier Parker Campbell finished 12th in the state in the 100 yard butterfly (52.56). Annie Shirk finished with two top 25 finishes.
