After scoring 484 points through 12 events, the boys swim team finished second place out of six schools at a meet hosted by Olathe South on Wednesday, Jan. 16.

The team won four of the events, including the 200 Yard Medley Relay, the 100 Yard Butterfly, the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay and the 100 Yard Breaststroke.

The team was helped by the addition of sophomore Mason Davis, who joined the team a few days before the meet. Davis, the first diver the team has had in two years, said diving in that competitive atmosphere was unlike any other experience he has had.

“I remember very vividly thinking, ‘wow this is intense.’ It was really silent and when I step on the board, everybody is watching me, so it’s a lot of pressure, but it’s a lot of fun,” Davis said. “It was also a lot more formal because you aren’t in the same pool where people are going down water slides.”

Junior Colby Beggs, after leading the team to victory in the 200 Yard Medley and Freestyle Relay, is satisfied by the team’s success this year.

“As a whole I think we’ve done really well so far this season. We got first in a couple of meets, we’ve done really good as a team,” Beggs said. “We’ve scored good, and we have a diver now which hasn’t happened in two years.”

The boys swim team will compete next at the Blue Valley Southwest Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 19, then next week on Tuesday Jan. 22, also at BVSW.
