GOOSE CREEK - Following a three-year drought, Snee Farm is once again the City Swim Meet champion.
Snee Farm, which had won the title for 22 straight years before being dethroned by Coosaw Creek, led the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association City Championship meet from start-to-finish at the Goose Creek Community Pool at Crowfield Golf Club.
Snee Farm piled up 2,949.5 points in the three-day meet that finished later than planned Sunday because of an hour and 20-minute weather delay. Coosaw Creek finished second with 2,580.5, followed by: Daniel Island, 2,571; Northbridge Terrace, 2,403; and Shadowmoss, 2,194.5.
This year's meet was moved to Goose Creek after 17 straight years at the Jewish Community Center because of construction at the JCC.
"The meet actually went very well," said CCAA president Chris Accetta. "We had a tremendous amount of help from the city of Goose Creek and more help from the Stratford High School swim team. We had nothing but great comments. We're very pleased with the way the meet ran."
The Goose Creek pool was a 25-yard pool rather than the 25-meter pool at the JCC, resulting in new records in every event.
Among the highlights from this year's meet:
Coosaw Creek's Micah Bohon ended her CCAA swim career with 19 individual championships in the City Swim Meet, tied for third in CCAA history by Lindsay Olson and Cami Sink, who both won 20 titles swimming for Parkshore.
Mary Alice Dupree of Fort Johnson won the City Meet butterfly title for the sixth straight time, swimming in the 13-14 age group.
Dupree was one of three swimmers who won three events Sunday. Dupree also won the freestyle and individual medley. Bohon, 15-18 girls, won the butterfly, backstroke and individual medley. Jeremiah Bohon, 15-18 boys, won the butterfly, breaststroke and individual medley.
The only other multiple- event winners from Sunday's final session, 13-14 and 15-18, were Shadowmoss teammates Ethan Thrasher and Justin Lawrence. Thrasher won the 13-14 boys freestyle and butterfly while Lawrence won the 13-14 boys breaststroke and individual medley.
Trace Hall of Brickyard won the Carolyn Y. Keller Scholarship for rising seniors.
CCAA Team Sportsmanship Awards went to Shadowmoss (Red League), Longpoint and Sha-Mel-Lon (White League) and Jewish Community Center (Blue League).
