Highlights: Hang won two individual events at the Region V South Carolina High School League Championship on Sept. 29, the 100- and 500-yard freestyle. He also made a major impact in South Aiken’s win in the 400-yard freestyle relay. At the Class AAAA State Championship on Saturday, Hang finished fifth in the 100-yard breaststroke.

What They’re Saying: “Thomas was incredible at the region meet. He blew the 100 freestyle away and was just phenomenal. We also had a fantastic 400 relay and beat Lexington. We shaved eight seconds off our time, and Thomas was a big part of that.” - Coach Heather Price

What He Said: “I thought I did pretty well. I felt it was about the same as last year; it was an intense final. But I’ve been practicing well and was happy with how it went.”
