On Saturday, Oct. 7 the swim team placed first against Glenn and Gateway at Blockhouse. 

“We didn’t have as good of a meet last week, so this week we had to really step up our game,” junior Kyle Tibbets said. “Our biggest challenge was trying to match our times from last year.”

The Lions placed first in the Girls and Boys 200 Yard Medley Relay, the Girls 200 Yard Freestyle Relay, and the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay. Freshman Alan Hoang placed second in the 200 Yard Freestyle and second in the 100-yard butterfly and junior Joshua Boyer placed second in the 200 yard IM. Junior Logan Gier placed second in the 50-yard freestyle and first in the 500-yard freestyle. In the 100 yard freestyle, junior Kyle Tibbets placed second. Boyer second in the 100-yard breaststroke. Junior Catherine Hoang placed first in the 200 Yard IM and the 100 Yard Backstroke and sophomore Felicity Hesters placed second in the 200 Yard IM. Junior Addison Porch placed first in the 100-yard freestyle and senior Brelyn Cary placed second in the same event. In the 100 yard breaststroke, junior Kennedy Cochran placed first and Hesters placed second.

“Last year, our swimmers consisted of mostly underclassmen, and we were able to qualify for the large meets like regionals,” junior Logan Gier said. “Because we have a lot of returning members, hopefully, we will be able to improve on last year’s results.”

Their next meet is on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Round Rock Invitational at 9 a.m.
