The Cypress Christian Swim program took its largest team ever to the regional meet at the University of Houston on January 18. Eleven swimmers participated in 15 events, five relays and 18 individual races.
Elliott Jones won the 200 IM and the 100 Back with record times that would have won any division. His two first place victories along with some strong relays helped the team of four boys to finish 14th out of 24 schools.
The girls had some good swims as well with lots of record times. They finished 13th out of 25 schools. Allison Thompson finished 3rd in the 100 Free and 5th in the 50 Free. Alexandria Vinson finished 5th in the 100 Back. CCS also had a 400 Free relay team for the first time and they put on quite a race against the clock at the end of the night. Four record swims put them under the state qualifying time.
Here are the complete results from the meet. A third place finish or better is an automatic entrance into the state swim meet on February 7. The next seven fastest times across the state also qualify.
