— Despite finishing fourth in the Greater Charlotte Swim League Division III All-Star meet, the Springfield Greenwave will move up to a harder division next year.

Springfield was named dual meet champions for Division III with a regular season record of 5-1, but came up short in the All-Star meet held at the Mecklenburg Aquatics Center.

“We were missing a lot of swimmers,” said Springfield head coach Nate Whyte. “If we had all our swimmers I think we would have finished in the top two or three.”

Weddington Chase won the meet, but second through fourth place was separated by just 42 points. Springfield scored 1,309 points for fourth and was edged out by Mountainbrook for third with 1,317 points. Bridge Hampton finished second with 1,351 points.

Springfield also won three relay events: the girls’ 11-12 200-yard medley relay, the boys’ eight and under 100-yard freestyle relay and the boys’ 13-14 200-yard freestyle relay.

The Greenwave had five winners at the All-Star event, with three of those winners winning multiple races.

Individual winners for Springfield were:

Ryan Williams – boys’ 13-14 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard individual medley and 50-yard breaststroke

Emily Eaton – girls’ 8 and under 25-yard freestyle, 25-yard backstroke and 25-yard butterfly

Evelyn Peters – girls’ 11-12 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard individual medley and 50-yard butterfly

Samuel Fitzgerald – boys’ 15-18 50-yard breaststroke

James Peters – boys’ 8 and under 25-yard backstroke
