Top finishes for Redhawk Swim and Dive at Thursday’s meet. The team left the Bruce Bruce Eubanks Natatorium placing second overall, and 24 podium finishes.

Going up against Wakeland, Emerson, and Cleburne Thursday at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium, the Redhawks swim team cruised their way to an overall second place finish, falling only to the Wolverines. Between swim and dive events, the team scored a total of 24 podium finishes, including nine wins and several TISCA cuts.

“Overall the meet went really well,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said. “The kids raced hard. We had quite a few kids try new events, and they rocked it. Wakeland is a tough competitor and we stayed on their heels throughout the meet.”

However, coach Gnoza believes there is still room for improvement.

“We need to keep up our training so we can finish our meet strong,” he said. “ Our first races are always better than the last and we need to learn how to finish strong even when we are tired.”

This sentiment is reflected by junior You-Ning Chou.

“[I have to be] faster than last season and try my best even when I don’t feel like it,” Chou said.
