Taking on 15 schools, the Redhawks swim and dive team is ready to make a splash at the two day meet. “We will get to see up close where we stand at the halfway point in our season,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said.

The Redhawk swim and dive team faces some of its fiercest competition yet this season as it heads into two days of meets against 15 other schools at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium, starting Friday at 6 p.m. 

“We have had some tough competitions the last few weeks, but this meet will be a good indicator of where we stand compared to others in our district,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said. “This meet will boil down to kids getting up and racing hard, but also on a sheer number of kids on each team. We are able to field every event on the boy’s side and almost every event on the girl’s side. As long as the kids trust themselves, their training, and each other we should have some powerful results. 

Featuring several bigger schools, Gnoza believes that the meet will be a good indicator of their progress.

“We will get to see up close where we stand at the halfway point in our season,” he said. “We are also racing some 6A schools so that will be a great competition. If we show up with a positive winning mindset then we should have some great overall results.”

However, for senior Dionisio Vega Cabrera, the emotional payoff has more value than any award or podium finish.

“I’m just really happy about how well the team is performing and how our attitudes have improved since the start of the season,” Vega Cabrera said.
