The Jefferson Sea Dragons traveled north to Habersham County this past weekend to compete in the North Georgia Swim League Championship.
The NGSL meet was a little different than what the swimmers are accustomed due to the meet being more of a team effort than individual scores.
Jefferson snagged a respectable fourth place improving from last year’s finish in sixth.
Out of the 12 teams in the league, Jefferson is on the smaller side with 81 swimmers compared to the nearly 200 swimmers other teams brought.
Head coach Matthew Grant and recreation director Ben Dillard have both been credited with the success of the team this season.
The swimmers had a good meet at Habersham, with four first place finishes from Joshua Joransen, Gabrielle Joransen, and McKenzie Klinck.
Klinck also was one of 12 swimmers that won a high point award out of the 600 plus swimmers at the meet.
The Sea Dragons will be sending 17 swimmers to compete in the GPRA state meet this weekend in Tifton.
