38 years and counting: Lions Club unites swimmers with ‘Lions Sprint Meet’

Swimmers from Stingray Swim Club, Camana Bay Aquatic Club, Seven Mile Swimmers, Brac Barracudas and Special Olympics gathered Saturday (12 May) for the 38th annual Lions Sprint Meet held at the Lions Pool in George Town.

“This is the 38th year, it’s grown every year, it’s great to get the kids over from the Brac to have the opportunity to swim in a bigger pool than they have over there so it’s a very important meet to the Lions Club” says Lions member Steve Surrey.

This was the first domestic meet of the swim season since Cayman’s swimmers returned from the 2018 CARIFTA Championships with a 41-medal haul.

Results from meet were not available at this time.

Next up for Cayman’s swimmers is the Cayman Islands Aquatic Sports Association (CIASA) ‘Development Team Swim Camp’ 18th-20th May.
