Allison came up through the age-group ranks of the club and now swims at the University of Georgia. Earlier this week she took 4th in the 400 free and was very close to the existing American Record.
Also earlier this week CW’s Peter Vanderkaay took 4th place in the 400 free. And today he placed 6th in the 800 free.
And CW’s Tyler Clary placed 5th today in the 200 fly. He has the 400 IM left later this week.
