Placeholder Image

            The Covington YMCA is making some big waves this summer.

            The Covington Y swim team placed second overall during the Rockdale Swim League Championships held Saturday at Johnson Park, with the 10 and under age group winning the morning session.

            The event included six teams with over 450 swimmers participating in the meet. However, the Covington Y 65-member team lost to a team of 100 swimmers.

            Overall, the Y had six swimmers win individual high point awards for their respective age groups.

            The GRPA State Meet is July 20-21 in Augusta, and the Covington Y has several swimmers who have a good chance of winning a state title.
