Blue Jay swimmers commanded the field of competitors at the District 9-5A Championship Meet at UNO on Monday, Oct. 22. Taking the district championship with 619 points, their closest competitor was Holy Cross, who trailed Jesuit by 160 points. Strong performances were put in by all swimmers, but especially by two swimmers who will be signing national letters of intent with major collegiate swim programs at a Nov. 14 signing ceremony, Davis Edwards (Auburn) and Charles Korndorffer (Notre Dame).

In His Words…

Head swimming coach Bret had this to say about the district performance: “When we get to the district meet, we see all of the hard work these young men have put in start to pay off. It is the first of our big three meets for the season. Our guys are swimming very well. They are a strong team, hard-working and focused. What I appreciate most about this group of swimmers, though, is they way they all come together and enjoy being friends. That exactly what you want to see in a great team.”

On the Horizon…

The Blue Jays will compete in the metro meet on Friday and Saturday, October 26-27 at UNO, which serves as the qualifying meet for the state meet to be held November 16-17 in Sulphur.
