The Manchester Makos ended their Long Course season this weekend with 10 swimmers participating in the Southeastern Long Course meet in Huntsville, Alabama. A total of 1,178 swimmers from 53 teams had to achieve qualifying times to participate in the meet. Swimmers traveled from Tennessee, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle to participate in the three day competition. The Makos team had a strong showing in the 13 and up age group with 8 swimmers, and 2 swimmers represented the 9-10 year age group.
Representing the Makos were Nicholas Bogle, Ryan Brown, Madeline DeWolfe, Paizley Hodges, Logan Holt, Isaac Lee, Lauren Lee, Joshua Rutledge, Caitlyn Slayton, and Kaylee Williams.
Isaac Lee lead the team with one first place, four second place, and one sixth place finish. Bogle had two sixth place finishes and one eighth place finish.

The Manchester Makos are now in their off-season, which will last about a month. After the break, they will begin training for short course season.
