Swimmers Prepare For Opening Meet


The Waxahachie Swim Team is preparing for their first meet, Oct. 1st in Arlington at Wilkerson-Grienes Activity Center Natatorium.

“I am excited to swim in this first meet and being able to see my hard work pay off,” Junior Vicky Chavarria said. She has been on the WHS swim team for three years, but she has been swimming since she was 7 years old.

The team practices four times a week, Monday through Thursday from 6:00-7:30 am. Some swimmers find the early morning practices to be extraneous and exhausting.

“Why do I have to wake up so early when I could be sleeping in?” Sophomore Bryce Thomison said.

Senior Captain Tyeler Hess has been swimming with the team for all four years of high school.

“I’m excited for the rest of the year and to get to spend time with the team before I go,” Hess said.
