Avery Voss and Caroline Colombo have had the luxury of competing for two elite swimming programs.
Both rising sophomores at Upper Arlington High School, Voss and Colombo also are members of the Scioto Country Club team, which won its third consecutive Private Country Club Athletic League title July 16 at Ohio State.
Scioto scored 4,114 points to finish ahead of New Albany (3,263.5), The Lakes (2,762), the Country Club at Muirfield Village (1,586.5), Worthington Hills (1,578.5) and Brookside (847.5).
The meet began July 14 with the 8-and-under swimmers competing at Scioto Country Club, which finished first in 24 of 66 total events.
Competing in the boys 15-and-over division, Voss won the 50-meter freestyle (24.67 seconds), placed second in the 50 butterfly (27.06) and finished third in the 50 backstroke (29.47).
"It's less pressure (than high school), but it's fun to come out and see what the team has," Voss said. "It's really nice to see the little kids all excited and we won another one."
Competing in girls 15-and-over, Colombo won the 50 back (30.86), finished second in the 50 free (27.45) and placed fourth in the 50 fly (30.46).
"It's fun to come back because we've been doing this since we were little," Colombo said. "It's nice to come back and support the team."
Another notable performance for Scioto came from Lauren Braun, who won the 25 free (17.95), 25 back (21.12) and 25 breaststroke (24.36) in the girls 7-8 division.
"We have a good year-round program," Scioto coach Tim Bridgham said. "Coach Todd Grant is a do-everything for Scioto. He's the pool manager, my assistant, but he runs the show in the wintertime and he has developed an unbelievable program for our younger swimmers and that's one reason why we've become so strong. We want to keep bringing them up and hopefully we can keep this going for a while."
Meet director Caitlain Spangler, a 2013 graduate of UA, said about 600 athletes competed.
"This is a very important meet," Spangler said. "I enjoy it because it continues to promote the sport I love. I enjoy it because I get to see a lot of different kids. I'm also a teacher, so I get to see them in a different atmosphere. ... To have this at Ohio State is huge.
"We have quite a few high school athletes competing, which is cool to see them being a role model for the younger kids."
