Fortunately, the state of South Carolina safely avoided being pounded head-on by recent Hurricane Joaquin, but the state is still experiencing record rainfall, leading to mega flooding throughout the state. Reports of bridges collapsing, roads being closed off and dams overflowing have caused safety to be of primary concern for citizens all over the state.
As such, the South Carolina High School Class AAA and AAAA swim meets are at risk of being postponed. Both meets are slated to take place at the Carolina Natatorium on the campus of the University of South Carolina on Saturday, October 10th, with the AAA scheduled for the morning and AAAA set for the evening. But, as of today, the SC High School League is ‘closely monitoring’ the flooding situation and potential contingency plans for postponement or rescheduling are being discussed.
South Carolina remains in a state of emergency and will provide updates as they become available.
