Sixteen students from the varsity swim teams competed in the FHSAA Regional Swimming and Diving Meet on Nov. 10, with the boys team placing 2nd overall and the girls placing 8th. 15 will advance and compete in the state competition on Nov. 17.

“I’m just proud of myself that I was able to get this far,” freshman diver Christina Hilton said.

Head Coach Michael Judd hopes to improve upon the school’s placings from previous years at the state meet.

“On the guys side of things, we finished fifth at states last year and we would love to bump that up to the top three this year,” Judd said.

Judd’s goal for the team throughout the season is to continuously improve upon the skills of the members.

“Our goal is always, when we advance from one meet to the next, is just improve,” Judd said. “We want to swim faster as the season goes on.”
