Thursday night’s swim meet at the Augusta Aquatic Center had a different vibe to it.
While still competitive, some of the top swimmers, Greenbrier’s Brennan Day and Evans’ Nathan Rogers and Mitchell Petras, were absent. They were competing at the 2014 Speedo Winter JR National Championships in Federal Way, Wash.
Also, many of the other swimmers at the meet had competed at the Georgia Senior State Championships on Saturday.
It was perfect timing, however, with it being the last meet before the extended Christmas break.
