by Adam Waller

Girls and boys swimming participated in regionals Feb 8, in Lubbock. Originally, the meet was supposed to span across two days, but the event was scheduled all on day due to weather complications.


On the boys side, six went, including Marques Zarate, Patrick Donaldson, Austin Crossland, Irving Avila, Levi Estrada, and Daniel Olmos.


They participated in the 200 M Medley Relay, the 100 M backstroke, and the 400 M free relay, among other events.


“Overall the team did really well…I think the girls placed 3rd or 4th, which is really good,” Zarate said.


Marcus Zarate, and Natalie Armendarez both dropped time in their events, but all swimmers did good and swam well.


On the girls side, 10 girls went, including Karen Arias, Alyssa Ramos, Carlee Bissett, Mellisa Renteria, Ximena Lopez, Renata Lopez, Arabella Delgado, Marisela Gonzalez-Cruz, and Margaret Yung.


They participated in  events including the Medley Relay, the 200 M free, the 100 M free, the 150 M free, the 100 M backstroke, the 100 M breaststroke, and the 400 M free relay.
