“All the girls swam really well, and our races scored a lot of points leading us to win over Southlake Carroll and Westlake, which we have never done before,” senior swimmer Julianna Berlin said. “It was very exciting and I think our relays will pose a lot of competition at state this year.”  

From this meet the athletes learned that support is the best strategy to win. Throughout the races the team members cheered on their friends until the very last stroke. Overall the team said they performed with unity which aided in their success, yet they still will continue to build their strength and improve on form and technique for the next competition.

“We competed really well,” captain Mason Wong said. “We competed against a lot of the best teams in the state. This is the first meet where I felt that our team was really coming together.”

The team will be heading to Mansfield for the Texas Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association on  Nov. 16.
