Mav swimmers choose colleges
By Bob Castello • Staff writer • May 4, 2010
Mauldin's swim teams have consistently been among the state's best, and five of the Mavericks recently announced their plans to continue competing on the collegiate level.
Jessica Mason, a Travelers Rest student who had special permission to swim with Mauldin, signed a letter of intent to continue her career at Converse College. Elizabeth Simon will be attending and swimming at East Carolina University .
Mason and Simon made the All-Region 2-AAAA team and then helped the Mavericks to the Class AAAA state championship in October. Both swam on the Mavericks' 400-yard freestyle relay team that took first at the state meet.
Three members of the Mauldin boys team also will swim in college: Andrew Tanzey signed with State University of New York at Buffalo; Kevin Wood signed with Limestone College; and Blake Buchanan will attend and swim at College of Charleston .
Tanzey was the state champion in the 100 breaststroke and the region champion in the 500 freestyle event.
All three made the all-region team and were on the Mavericks' victorious 400 freestyle relay team. Buchanan also won the 200 individual medley.

SENIOR BOYS HAD A GREAT SEASON!
 

BOYS SWIM TEAM TAKES 7TH  Swims Many Personal Best times - AWESOME SWIMMING!
Maudlin Boys swim team stepped on the deck with fewer swimmers than many of the other AAAA Teams. This depth makes a difference when 20 swimmers score in every event. This fact did not deter their determination or spirit. They swam Personal Best times in every event. All the while being the loudest, most spirited team at the USC Natatorium. Including keeping up the cheers when the girls needed their support the most. Congratulations Boys You are the Best! We are Proud of You!
