Varsity Swimming End of Season Recap from Coach Phillips

Vikings High School Swim Team completed their most accomplished season in program history. The growth and success of the swimming program has been a dream come true, from having our own pool to taking the most qualifiers to State. The swim team competed in several invitations throughout the season; including the TISCA Gulf Championships. We also hosted the program's first ever home swim meet back in January against Awty International.  This year, we had over 40 personal records broken and 7 Village School swim records broken. It is amazing to see all of the dedication and determination pay off! Great job Vikings Swim! #SettingRecords
