Swim Team

Facing tough Competition, Christmas Cookie Consumption, and late night new year’s Celebrations, the Warrior Swim Team tackled an early wake up call and began the 2016 portion of our meet schedule at the always challenging Waynesville Orange and Black Meet.  This meet features some of the best small school teams in both Southwest and Northwest Ohio.  The Warriors started slow but by the end of the meet, both the boys and girls teams came back with some good swims to both finish in the Top Ten.

Highlighting the meet was Brooke Darkow placing 5th in the 50 Freestyle and 6th in the 100 Butterfly, and Andrew Simmons breaking the minute mark by going 59.15 in the boys 100 Freestyle and finishing in 5th place!  The team continues to improve and set several Personal Records.  Those breaking personal records include Madison Gebhart in the 200 Freestyle, Alyssa Colon in the 100 Backstroke, Sophie Reynolds in the 100 Breastroke and 50 Freestyle, and Emily Golich in the 50 Freestyle.

The guys had a terrific meet, smashing personal best marks include Ben Geiss breaking the 30 second mark in the 50 Freestyle and dropping his 100 Breaststroke time by 6 seconds, Max Johnson, having an excellent meet with performances in the 50 Free and 100 Breaststroke, Brandon Dellinger, continuing to drop time in the 100 Breaststroke, and finally, Zac Norvell taking 10 seconds off of his 100 Backstroke time!

Be sure to SAVE the DATE: Saturday, February 6th 6:00pm the Metro Buckeye League Meet at Trotwood High School.  This will also serve as our Senior Night where we will recognize the 5 Seniors on the team.  The team will need your support as your Lady Warriors look to defend their League Championship from last year and the Boys look to make a name for themself at the league meet as well.

The team will be in action this week, Friday Night in the Fairmont Firebird Relays and then Saturday in the Springfield Shawnee Invitational.  Both meets will be at Wright State University.
