Posted: Updated:

The Panama City Swim Team wrapped up their annual Paradise Invitational Long Course meet. PCST capped off the short course season finishing 22nd in the country at Junior Nationals. According to Head Coach Jonathan Kaplan, he's looking forward to a successful summer season in the long course.

"The way that having those stars on the team helps is that it gives the younger kids someone that they can say hey, my teammate, in the town can do it," said Kaplan. "If they can do it, I can do it. A lot of our younger swimmers, those swimmers are beating the times of the current top swimmers on the team. If our current top swimmers on the team are already making a big push nationally, then these ones coming up are going to be even better then them in a few years."
