The Wellington Wahoos swim team hosted its third annual Spring Invitational on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 16-18.
Friday was the long course (one mile), with Saturday and Sunday hosting the short-course events. The meet drew teams from the Treasure Coast to Fort Lauderdale. In all, eight teams were represented, bringing in nearly 400 swimmers from ages six to 18.
“The event is held under the sanction of USA Swimming and Florida Gold Coast,” meet director Richard Whalen said.
Whalen is also the Wahoos’ coach and has been coaching in the area for more than 25 years.
The meet provided eight lanes in the short-course events Saturday and Sunday at the Wellington Aquatics Complex. For more information about the Wellington Wahoos, visit www.wellingtonswimming.com.
