TAPPS State Swim

The Warrior Swim Team competed in the TAPPS State Swim Meet on Monday, February 6 in San Antonio. The Warriors were represented by 13 athletes and competed in four relay events, and four individual events. The girls’ team was represented by sophomores Katie Schmitt and Audrey Fransen and freshmen Madeline Boctor, Zoe Brashier, Jana Faraclas, Kayla Geyer, Mariella Lee and Alison Richard. They placed 30th out of the 40 schools represented in Division III with Schmitt and Richard also scoring points in individual events, the 200 IM and 100 Butterfly, respectively. The Warrior boys’ team was represented by juniors Ayden Farrell, Brody Johnson and Will Simcik and sophomores James Allen and Noah Utley. The boy’s team placed 25th out of the 37 schools represented in Division III with Johnson, who qualified in two individual events, the 50 Free (placing 10th) and the 100 Back, and Noah Utley in the 100 Free, scoring points individually.

The Warriors had a successful season with many first-time swimmers on the team. The experience that was gained by this young team will pay dividends down the road as they develop in the program over the next few years. Coach Nugent and Coach Hamm are very proud of the efforts that not only the state qualifiers put in during the season, but also for the whole team, with 41 swimmers in high school and middle school combined, the most in the school’s history. The swim program at CCS has a strong foundation to build upon and the future indeed looks bright. Way to go, Warriors!
