The Northwest Georgia Aquatics Nitro swimmers excelled at the 2015 Georgia Recreation and Parks Association Summer League “B” State Swim Championships, a sanctioned USA Swimming meet in Tifton recently.

Eight Nitros were crowned champions, including Ryan Hood, Will Eickman, Matthew Petty, Brody Bushong, Emily Driscoll, Kathryn Russell, Cassie Workman and Kailey Klingbeil. Cal Parker and Bryant Mathis qualified for the Georgia Senior Long Course Championships, many Nitros finished top eight in multiple events, and 100 percent of the team earned personal records.

The Nitros will complete its summer season at the Georgia Invitational next week. Pictured are Ryan Hood, Will Eickman, Matthew Petty, and Brody Bushong.
