Blue Doplins’ Savannah Chee-Wah who also achieved a few Carifta qualification times was a distant second with 58 points, four ahead of Tidal Wave Aquatics’ Gabrielle Vickles, another Carifta qualifier.
Wilson, also a 12-year-old, swam his way to 10 gold medals, seven of which were better than Carifta or CCCAN standard qualifying marks and two silver, while Marlins’ Nikoli Blackman (65) and Sea Hawks’ Josiah Changar (59) were second and third respectively overall in their age-group.
