“Some of the kids have been battling the flu and some are battling it now,” Head Coach Brian Smith said. “I applaud those who competed while in the condition they were and I hope they all get well soon. Overall, we swam good but we still need to get that attitude that we can't be beat and perform that way. Our next few meets will determine a lot of who goes to the state meet in Jenks on Feb. 15-16. I hope the kids accept the challenge to dig in and fight for the coveted state swim qualifcation. I was really proud of our 11 seniors who swam in their only home meet of the season. They are a great bunch of kids to coach.”
2013 Seniors include: Bethanie Lemmings, Alex Smith, Ryan Pettus, Trevor McDaniel, Logan Brown, Bryce Hauenstein, Ethan Gordon, Jordan Moore, Tyler Newby, Evan Geitzen and Josh Ogg.
