Micah Sumrall wins Gold at Pan Pacific Championships and Senior Nationals!


The Cherokee Tribune published the following article about Gold coach Micah Sumrall’s success last summer at Senior Nationals and the Pan Pacific Championships!

Micah Sumrall was ready to give up swimming for good, but after a change of heart, she showed she still had plenty in the tank, winning the 200-meter breaststroke at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Tokyo.

The win earned Sumrall a spot in next year’s world championships in South Korea and a chance to return to the top of the swimming world.

“I love swimming, but I just had to take some time off,” Sumrall said. “Just to come back and be able to get on top was really cool.”

Finding success in the pool was nothing new to Sumrall.

She was a two-time all-American during her collegiate career at Auburn. She qualified for the 2012 summer Olympics and placed sixth in the 200 breaststroke.

Her career came to a halt, though, after she missed out on the 2016 Olympics by .54 seconds.

Following the disappointment, Sumrall took more than a year off from competitive swimming and moved to Woodstock to coach with Chattahoochee Gold, where she found a new inspiration.

“Becoming a coach and helping kids learn about the sport just set me up to come back and swim again. It’s humbling. It’s really cool to have made it back, especially after doing a mixture of swimming and working. When I was a professional a couple years ago, it was just my job to swim. That’s all I did. That aspect of it is different. It just gives me something else to think about. I get to divide it between my swimming and the kids that I coach.”

After some time back in the pool and some prodding from coach Mark Schilling, Sumrall began to train again.

She said she had not thought much about how far she wanted to take her rededication, but a slow start gave way to faster times.

“We weren’t sure how it would go,” she said. “We just took it one step at a time. I didn’t do any big meets until February. Before that, it was just really small baby steps.”

Sumrall’s first big test of her return came late last month at the national championships, where she surprised even herself by posting a 2:22.06 to win by 1.16 seconds over Bethany Galat.

The competition was even tougher last weekend in Japan, but Sumrall again rose to the occasion, holding off two-time Olympic gold medalist Lilly King over the final 100 meters to win by .24 seconds in 2:21.88.

“It’s pretty scary. Luckily, I got to race (King) in the morning,” Sumrall said. “The preliminary race played out almost exactly the same, except she was able to pass me. I knew going into the final swim it was something shew was going to do. It helped me keep my stroke together a little more and make sure I had enough distance between me and her for the last 50.”

With two big wins under her belt since her return, Sumrall will have plenty of momentum to take into next year’s world championships.

Until then, she will continue coaching and competing in smaller meets, but she said she is looking forward to continuing the journey that almost never got started.

“For now, I’m just going to go along for the ride,” she said. “I wasn’t even sure I would go to worlds if I made it, but I think I can get better. I would like to try that and see what I can do. If I’m satisfied with what I can do, I probably won’t go to the Olympics, but if I think I can still get better, I’ll probably try for the Olympics again.”

Both Micah and her coach, Mark Schilling, were selected to the 2018-19 USA National Team:

Swim Across America


Swim Across America is in its 6th year in Atlanta, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for such worth causes as the AFLAC Cancer and Blood Disorder Center and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Last year, Chattahoochee Gold competed on behalf of Gold swimmer Jonas Warta, who successfully fought a battle with retinal cancer. For 5 years, the Warta family organized “Team Jonas” to help promote Swim Across America and its mission to unite the swimming community by raising funds for cancer research.

The Warta’s have now transitioned their team over to Chattahoochee Gold. We are honored to carry on their tradition by encouraging all of our members to participate in or donate to Swim Across America.

Swim Across America’s 2018 event will be held September 22 at Lake Lanier Islands. We invite all Sectionals, Sectionals Advanced, Senior, National, and High School swimmers to support this great cause. Participants will be excused from attending practice on September 22. There are several different race options (.5 mile, 1 mile, 5K, and 2 mile relay – 1/2 mile loops with up to 4 swimmers). We recommend you sign up for the 1 mile race, though some of our older, more endurance-inclined athletes may try the 5K (keep in mind it’s 5500 yards of lake swimming).

This event is not required, just encouraged! If you’re attending the event, please support “Chattahoochee Gold” (our Swim Across America team). To join us, click on the link and join the team.


If you’d like to participate, please sign up as soon as possible, as spots are limited. Thank you.

Georgia Zone Team


Congratulations to the senior Gold swimmers joining the Georgia 2018 Zone Team! Georgia swimming recently announced that Jordan Edwards and Sarah Brown are on the zone team with Jordan Helsby as an alternate.

2nd Place at Senior State! Final LC Wrap-Up


Here is the round-up of our final meets of the 2017 long course season. Thank you to all of our swimmers and parents for making it a successful season. Farewell to our seniors! You will be missed.

There were a lot of new team records this season. Here is a download link to the updated long course records: http://goldswim.com/download/3005/

*** Senior State: Athens, GA ***
Results file: http://goldswim.com/download/3074/
Senior State was held July 28-30 at the UGA’s Gabrielsen Natatorium. Chattahoochee Gold placed 2nd in the overall team scores. There were many highlights during the meet! The team did a great job supporting each other.

Relay wins, top 3 individual finishes, team records:
The women dominated the medley relays with glorious wins in both the 200 medley relay and the 400 medley relay. Both relays were new team records! Not to be completely eclipsed, the men won the 800 free relay, with lionhearted efforts from swimmers coming off the 400 IM (if you ever wonder why we train so much, these fellows can testify). Michelle McCord placed 2nd in the 200 IM and 3rd in the 50 back (setting a 17-18 team record). Jack Dalmolin won the 200 breast (with a 17-18 team record) and placed 2nd in the 200 IM. Bayley Frierson placed 3rd in the 200 fly. Other swimmers with top 8 individual finishes were Kristina Friedrichs, Parker Ciaramella, Jordan Dunn, and Tommy Eaton. Check out the new team records that were set at the meet:

— Parker Ciaramella (15-16 boys): 400 free: 4:09.34, 800 free: 8:47.35, 1500 free: 16:34.11

*** Futures: Nashville, TN ***
Results: http://results.teamunify.com/senac/NAC/
Sophie Taylor and Evan Arsenault traveled to Nashville for the Futures Championship, held August 3-6. In terms of the ladder of championship meets, Futures is a step above Sectionals and a step below Junior Nationals. In other words, it’s a fast national-level meet. Evan placed 2nd in both the 50 free and the 100 free!

*** Southern Zone Championships: Tupelo, MS ***
The Zone Championships brings states from all over the South together to compete for a Zone title. Team Georgia won! Gold swimmer Lilly Byrne competed for the state of Georgia. Lilly placed 3rd in the 800 free and scored in the 200 free, 100 free, and 400 IM. The savvy hand of Head Coach Mark Schilling helped guide Georgia to their victory. The Gold coaching staff was also repped by Assistant Coach Andy Shields (now a Gold alumnus). Congratulations!

2017 Long Course Age Group State Championship


The 2017 Long Course Age Group State Championship was held July 20-23 at the McAuley Aquatic Center at Georgia Tech. Chattahoochee Gold placed third overall in team scores. We want to congratulate all of our age group state team members on a job well done and a successful end to the long course season. Just qualifying for the meet is not easy: there were races with less than 25 swimmers in the state qualified to compete

There were many great performances, but we first want to give a shout-out to our team records and victories. Gavin Halusic set new 8&under team records in the following events:
100 Free (1:16.63), 100 Fly (1:23.62), 50 free (32.85), 50 fly (35.31), and 100 back (1:28.61). Delainey Yarbrough won the 10&u girls 100 breast with 1:33.36 and tied the team record. She also won the 50 breast with 41.49, setting a new team record. Elliot Elmore won both the 11 year-old 100 breast and 50 breast. Owen Holland, Noah Richardson, Lawson Weddington, and Grant Davis crushed the 13-14 400 medley team record with a 4:12.86. Congratulations to Jordan Edwards who, despite being 13, was first alternate in the zone scoring for 13-14 girls.

To our entire age group team, enjoy a well-deserved rest during the off season. See you in the fall!

Gia Pergolini Team USA


Chattahoochee Gold’s Gia Pergolini had a record-breaking performance in the IDM Berlin 2017 international Paralympic swim meet in Germany. Six-hundred athletes from 52 countries competed in the meet.

Representing Team USA, Gia broke the World Record in 200 Backstroke with a time of 2:31.73 (only to lose the record a short time later to teammate Aspen Shelton). In 50 Backstroke, Gia broke her own American Record twice, on her way to a Silver Medal with a best time of 31.58.

On the final day of competition, Gia came close to picking up a new American Record in 100 Backstroke with a time of 1:09.27.

Gia is now preparing for the upcoming World Championship Paralympic Trials in Colorado Springs.

Based in Woodstock, Chattahoochee Gold is one of the first teams in the nation to be awarded Level 4 status by USA Swimming

Kevin Bacon Invite


The Kevin Bacon Invite was held July 7-9 at the Cumming Aquatic Center. The meet was hosted by Chattahoochee Gold and we want to thank all the volunteers who made our meet a success! The meet either served for our swimmers as a last chance state qualifier, a pre-state tune-up, or an end-of-season meet. Gavin Halusic broke both the 8&under 200 IM record (3:09.82) and the 50 breast record (49.29). Congratulations!

2017 Phillips 66 National Championships


What do Gold swimmers Emma Cole and Jackie Hill have in common with Katie Ledecky, Caeleb Dressel, Simone Manuel, Kevin Cordes, and Lilly King (and the entire USA National Team, for that matter)? They all swam at the 2017 Phillips 66 National Championships at the Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis, held June 27-July 1. Emma competed in the 100 free, 200 free, and 50 free. Jackie raced the 200 breast, 100 breast, and 50 breast.

The national championship meet also served as the selection event for the USA National Team competing at the 2017 FINA World Championships, which is why there were so many amazing swimmers at this meet (including Jackie and Emma!).

In preparation for swimming for the University of Kentucky this fall, Jackie was already swimming for Kentucky Aquatics, hence her royal blue swimsuit in the picture. Emma will be swimming for the University of North Carolina this fall. We’re proud of Emma and Jackie and look forward to their continued success!
