Several athletes with North Carolina Swimming connections competed at the Toyota U.S. Open in Atlanta last week. Many of the athletes are former NCS club swimmers now swimming for colleges and elite programs. Some of the top performances included a win in the 100 free by Erika Brown of Tennessee and formerly with SwimMAC. Olivia Carter of Enfinity Aquatic Club finished 2nd in the 200 fly with Charlotte Hook of the TAC Titans finishing 7th in that event. Ashley Twichell of TAC placed 4th in the 800 free and 7th in the 400 free. Michael Chadwick, formerly with SwimMAC and now with Team Elite, finished 6th in the 100 free and 8th in the 50 free. Hannah Moore of WOLF finished 5th in the 1500 free. Carter, Hook, and Moore swam finals in other events, as well.
Other NCS-connected athletes reaching finals included Julia Poole, Madison Kennedy, Lilly Higgs, Amanda Ray, Zach Brown, Braeden Haughey, Ross Dant, Reid Mikuta, and Christian Bayo.
