Over the weekend, the Barracuda Swim Club along with Family Guardian hosted the 29th Family Guardian Swim Meet at the Betty Kelly-Kenning National Swim Complex.
Due to some technical difficulties, results for the meet were not available up to press time, but will be released at a later date this week.
Head of the Barracuda Swim Club Clare Farrington noted that, despite the difficulties at the end of the meet, she was pleased with the way things went.
"I think overall things went well," said Farrington. "This was a fairly large meet; we had clubs come in from both Freeport and Abaco.
"Some of the kids are getting ready to go to Plantation, so they were still getting their times for that."
Farrington was referring to the Speedo Winter Championships, which will be held in Plantation, Florida from November 20-23, 2014.
As far as the performance of Barracuda's swimmers, Farrington stated that she felt they did a good job and the coaches were pleased.
Dion Gibson, president of the Barracuda Swim Club, stated "Family Guardian has supported our club for over 28 years. The sport of swimming is stronger than ever in The Bahamas. The Bahamas swimming team's win in this year's CARIFTA championships is evidence of the growth and talent of our swimmers. We are grateful to Family Guardian and look forward to this continued relationship for the development of our club and the sport of swimming."
The Barracuda Swim Club is a non-profit, parent-run organization that is dedicated to building the youth of our nation through swimming.
