EDMOND — The Greater Ada Swim Club attended the American Energy Winter Icebreaker Swim Meet Jan. 24-26 at Mitch Park in Edmond.

The team was represented by 21 competitive swimmers from the Ada area.

“Everyone competed very well. The whole team qualified for the Oklahoma Division II West Swim Meet,” said coach Donna Cox.

That event is scheduled for Feb. 14-16 at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center in Tulsa.

The swimmers at this meet garnered 43 personal-best times. Two GASC swimmers have already qualified for the State Championship Meet to be held Feb. 28th-March 1 (back at Mitch Park).

Haven Leslie will compete in the 50 freestyle and 50 breaststroke at the state meet, and Paisley Poe will participate in the 50 freestyle, 50 breaststroke, 100 breaststroke and 50 fly.

Coaches of the GASC Swim Club are Cox and Meredith Roberts.

The GASC Swim Club is a USA Swim team that was established in 1983. Each year, the club has tryouts to determine who makes the team, as it is limited as to the number of swimmers it can take due to pool size.

“Currently we have 28 Ada area youth from ages 8 to 18 who come from diverse cultures,” Cox said.

GASC is also the host club for the Ada High School and Byng High School swim teams. These athletes participate in OSSAA-sanctioned meets as well as the USA Swim program.

“Our swim program’s philosophy is to develop good character, wellness, knowledge and technique of swim skills and promote overall good health,” Cox said.
