Asphalt Green takes to water

Asphalt Green Unified Aquatics — AGUA — traveled to College Park, Maryland,, to compete in the Nation’s Capital Swim Club Invitational on Dec. 9-11. One of the most competitive meets on the East Coast, the three-day competition hosted 1,600 swimmers. Asphalt Green dove to the challenge with its swimmers delivering top performances in multiple age groups, including three — Isabel Gormley, Alex MacLennan, and Adell Sabovic — who set team records in individual events.

AGUA recently received two prestigious honors that combine to place the club in its highest standing in the history of the program. The team was named a Silver Medal Club in USA Swimming’s Club Excellence Program, and achieved a Level IV Club recognition team by USA Swimming — the highest possible ranking. These distinctions are a great honor for the club, and is a testament to the hard work of the athletes, coaches and entire AGUA family.
