Swim and dive arent done yet, with 16 Redhawks finishes top six in their districts meet, the road will now continue. Districts took place Thursday through Saturday at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium.

The Redhawk swim and dive team continued its season during a district meet at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium Thursday and Saturday. The Redhawks achieved 36 best times and placed 23 swimmers in the top eight, as well as 16 in the top six that will advance to regionals, including six in the top three. The girls placed third overall, while the boys took fifth just a point away from fourth.

“We had a lot of great swims,” head coach Zachariah Gnoza said. “The kids definitely stepped up and gave it their all. Everyone was so invested in their teammates. We had everyone up and cheering each other on throughout the meet. As far as improvements go, we just need to stay focused going into the region and not get discouraged. [We’ll] celebrate the victories even if they are small victories, because the kids did a phenomenal job in one of our state’s toughest districts. I am proud of each one of them.”

Sophomore Laura Huang is excited to see her work paying off.

I feel really happy about the meet because many people on the team dropped a lot of time and achieved their desired results, or even better,” Huang said. “Most of the team also got to take pictures at the podium for scoring top eight”.
