CUMMING, GA – Americus Blue Tide swimmer Landry Liston qualified for the USA-Swimming Age Group Sectional Championships in Raleigh, NC in March. Swimming at the Georgia Age Group State Championships on Saturday, February 20, in Cumming, GA, Liston won her heat of the 13-14 girls 200 yard breaststroke, shaving more than eleven seconds off her entry time.
