Championship-meet atmosphere awaits Tarheel Swimming Association competitors

With more than 10,000 youth swimmers on 78 teams this summer, the Tarheel Swimming Association long ago outgrew any single season-ending championship meet.

These days, four meets give the recreational summer league's swimmers a chance to experience a multi-team, championship-meet atmosphere.

Although the four meets being held this weekend and next in Raleigh and Cary are conducted by Wake County club teams and not the Tarheel Swimming Association, TSA teams are the invited participants.
