On Friday, Sept. 25, the varsity swim team competed at their first meet of the season. Going against McNeil and Vandegrift, the Warriors finished in first place with 259 points.
“I thought the meet went really great,” captain Sadie Runeman ‘21 said. “I mean, just based on scores alone we crushed it.”
The Warriors won the 200m medley, 200m freestyle and 400m freestyle relays, bringing in first for both the girls and boys team. Sonny Wang ‘23 placed first in the 200m freestyle and 200m backstroke, while Max Vinnik ‘22 placed second in the 200m freestyle and first in the 500m freestyle. Taking a commanding lead in the 50m Freestyle, KyAnh Truong ‘21 took first place, earning the team nine points.
“I was really proud of my swims,” Truong said. “It was awesome that we all did so well, especially at the first meet of the season.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s swim meet looked different from previous years. Swimmers were required to socially distance and wear a mask when they weren’t swimming.
“It felt really different going to a meet because of [the pandemic,]” Emilio Cohen ‘22 said. “But, I know that we had to take those precautions for the safety of our community.”
The team’s next meet is Saturday, Oct. 2 against Cedar Ridge and Lake Travis.
