With the summer swimming season winding down, members of the Craig Sea Sharks are finishing up a fabulous season. The Sea Sharks, often-outnumbered in many of the team-scoring meets they participated in this summer, have now been able to show off their individual talents at regional and state swim meets, where team scores do not matter. Matt Hulstine, 18, swam in the USA Swimming Speedo Champions Series in Gresham, Ore. last week. The Speedo Series made 19 stops across the country in 2012 and features some of the top talent in the U.S. “There were a lot of college swimmers and Olympic Trials qualifiers there, who obviously didn’t quite make it to the Olympics,” head coach Meghan Francone said. “It was very fun to see a lot of those people there.”
