All Dragon Swimmers Qualify At South Zone Meet
For SPC Championships

VARSITY SWIMMING & DIVING Boys Finish in Second Place; Girls, Fourth.

2/2 at SPC South Zone Meet, Alief Natatorium

Coach Sara Bany:

Cooper swimmers swam in their final meet leading up to the SPC (Southwest Preparatory Conference) Championships this weekend against the South Zone SPC teams. The boys finished second overall while the girls team finished fourth, but more importantly the team swam very well. Every swimmer on the team has now qualified to swim in the SPC Championship meet in two weeks! I am very proud of how hard these kids have worked this year.

Scoring points at this meet for the girls’ team were the 200 Medley Relay team of Victoria Davila, Tillie Claggett, Syuen See, and Lauren Cordes; the 200 Free Relay team of Davila, Noelle Harris, Dorothea Johnson and Katia Guerrero, and the 400 Free Relay team of Claggett, Guerrero, See and Cordes. Earning points for the team individually were Cordes in the 200 IM (4th place) and the 100 Breaststroke (5th place), Guerrero in the 200 Freestyle (8th place) and the 100 Butterfly (7th place), Claggett in the 50 Freestyle (4th place) and 500 Freestyle (2nd place), See in the 50 Freestyle (5th place) and the 100 Butterfly (8th place), and Davila in the 100 Freestyle (7th place) and the 100 Backstroke (8th place).

On the boys’ team, both the 200 Free Relay of Chris Seymour, Vidyal Pradeepkumar, William Staebel and Campbell Wolford, along with the 400 Free Relay of Mitchell Shannon, Henry Shea, Seymour and Wolford won their races. Individually, Staebel won the 200 IM and Seymour won the 100 Freestyle. Second place finishes included the 200 Medley Relay team of Pradeepkumar, Staebel, Seymour and Shannon, and individually, Wolford in the 50 Freestyle. Also scoring points for the Dragons were Shannon in the 200 Freestyle (5th place) and 100 Butterfly (6th place), Pradeepkumar in the 50 Freestyle (4th place) and the 500 Freestyle (6th place), Shea in the 50 Freestyle (6th place) and the 100 Breaststroke (4th place), Boris Leoro in the 50 Freestyle (8th place), Wolford in the 100 Freestyle (3rd place), and Staebel in the 100 Backstroke (3rd place).
