Three athletes from Southern Eagle Aquatics (SEGA) competed in the semi-annual Georgia Swimming Age Group State Championships and Junior Olympic swim meet, held from February 25 to 27, 2022, at Georgia Tech.  

Almost 900 swimmers from across the state were in attendance. SEGA finished 25th on the men’s aide with just two scoring athletes, Kenny Griffith of Brooklet and Cade Tysinger of Statesboro.

Jada Fedrick (11, Cobbtown), competed in the Junior Olympic meet, held concurrently during the AG State meet, for athletes within five percent of the qualifying times.  Fedrick finished the meet with best times in four of the five events in which she swam - 50 free (29.93), 50 back (40.21), 100 individual medley (1:20.71), and 200 free (2:41.4.

“It’s exciting to have a record number of qualifiers for a championship meet, and continue to do so each season.  It’s been a saying around our team for a while that more people means more fun, and it’s starting to show in practice and meets.  Fun is translating to higher achieving performance across the board through athletes supporting athletes, and each athlete helps make our team great,” Head Coach Beau Caldwell said.
