Being one out of only 24 teams qualifying for the 5A State competition, with senior Avery Langan finishing in the top ten. “Everyone on the team crushed their personal best times in their events,” head coach Zachariah Gnoza said.

The Redhawk swim and dive team wrapped up their dual meet championship Saturday at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium after two days of competition against 15 other schools, finishing with 18 podium finishes, including 10 first-place finishes. 

More significantly, however, the Redhawks received first place overall, making them the first Frisco ISD team to win the competition. 

“This was our first 2-day competition this year and the kids really rose to the occasion on day two,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said. “Some of the kids did not finish day one like they wanted, but really stepped up and did a fantastic job. They never gave up and gave it their all to the very end. We were the first Frisco team to win this competition. Exciting things are happening for the Redhawk Swim and Dive Team.”

Despite all the team’s success at the meet, junior You-Ning Chou is excited for future progress.

“I am excited about how everyone improves on the team and just watching the team grow,” Chou said.
