The Gulf Shores Swim Team scored 18 total wins in the Junior Championships at Orange Beach on July 8.
"We had a wonderful showing at the Junior Championships," Gulf Shores coach Brooke Monroe said. "I was extremely pleased with how well our swim team raced. The kids are showing great improvement in their times and stroke technique."
It was a long meet for all of the swimmers as the competition started at 9 a.m. and lasted about five hours.
Individual winners from the Gulf Shores squad included Haley Montgomery, Kristy Santa Cruz, Sarah Meehan Long, Taylor Shannon, Sammi Jo Daily and Nathan McGee, who combined for all 18 total wins for the team.
With the final meet of the year scheduled for Friday and Saturday in Fairhope, Monroe said she is looking forward to another solid performance from her continually improving team.
