Daniel Grimes named Male Swimmer of the Year

Daniel Grimes

Very few athletes from the area claimed a state swimming championship this school year so it stands to reason one who did should be named the Summerville Communications Male Swimmer of the Year.

Daniel Grimes brought home an individual state championship for winning the Men’s 100 Butterfly with a time of 57.25 during the SCISA State Swim Championship Meet. The Pinewood Preparatory School Swim Team traveled to Augusta, Ga. on Oct. 14 to compete in the championship meet and with Grimes help the Panther Boys placed fourth overall in the team standings.

In addition to his individual championship, Grimes teamed up with Krish Patel, Connor Campbell and Jack Murray to help the Panther 200 Medley Relay team place second with a time of 1:44.45 at the state meet.
