The swim team moves closer to districts after several accomplishments at the North Texas 5A TISCA Invitational in Frisco. The girls team placed 8th and the boys placed 14th. The 13 qualifiers stayed overnight.

“This was a tapered meet, meaning we came down off of our regular training,” Coach Sully said. “We had a week’s worth of easier practices just to regain energy.”

In the last two weeks we start holding back and start letting our bodies rest up and then in districts we can go all out.”

Junior Tanja Milanovic and junior Tanner Hartwick each broke a school record, in girls 200 freestyle and in boys 200 freestyle. For the girls team Milanovic made 3rd overall in the 500 freestyle, sophomore Sarah Cano made 4th in the 200 IM and 2nd in 200 backstroke, and junior Mckenzie Sumner placed 14th in the 200 and 500 freestyle. For the boys team sophomore Matthew Wheildon placed 4th in the 500 freestyle. Four school records were broken at the meet, two of which were from 2011. Half were in relays.

“To prepare for district we start intensive training in the month of December so we have winter practice, we have three days next week and two days the week after,” Junior Madeleine Phillips said. “They are three hour practices and we do over 60,000 yards. In the last two weeks we start holding back and start letting our bodies rest up and then in districts we can go all out.”

January 9 the team will have a meet at Belton for the New Year Invitational. After that they will be moving on to districts, regionals, and then state, all of which will be two weeks apart.
