The swim meet that all swimmers look forward to from their first stroke as a high school swimmer to their last is the Senior meet. Occurring on Jan. 9 at the Natatorium, all the senior swimmers were recognized and their future plans revealed.
With the month of January comes the return of the swim and dive district meet which will determine who moves on to the next level of competition for the state meet. The divers will compete in their district meet at the Natatorium on Friday, Jan. 17 at 5 p.m. while the swimmers will race in their meet the next day Saturday, Jan. 18 at 3:30 p.m.
The swim season has finally taken off after a very late start. A predicted two-week construction delay turned into five weeks of demolition at the natatorium which forced swimmers all over the district to find new methods of working out.
The swim and dive teams splashed into the season with their first meet on Sept. 28 at the Keller ISD Natatorium. The following photos were captured as the teams practiced for the KISD Invitational meet on Oct. 26.
Qualifying for the UIL State Championships for her second season in a row, varsity swimmer, Maci Finder, furthered the team’s influence not only in the pool, but also throughout the school, making waves throughout the season.
With the stakes high to qualify within the top two, one one thousandth of a second could be the deciding factor between a champion and just another competitor.
Beginning his day before even the sun rises, senior Karson Goppfarth has spent all four years of his high school career as a fundamental asset to both the Falcon swim team and Fine Arts program.
