Prosper Out Swims the Competition at First Meet
Last Thursday evening, Prosper Swim and Dive season officially kicked off the season with a first place finish during a tri-meet at McKinney High School. Prosper has a record 47 members on the swim team this year, three of which are divers.
The meet, which was a tri-meet with McKinney High School and McKinney North High School, started off with the relays, followed by individual races in the butterfly and freestyle swim. Halfway through the swimming races, the divers had a chance to show off their stuff. In the meet, divers worked off a six-dive list meaning they had to perform at least one dive from each of the following categories: forward, back, reverse, inward, and twist and the sixth dive may come from a category of the divers choice, but cannot be a previously used dive.
“We were really excited to get out here and see what this first meet looked like,” said head coach Sarah Milne. “I think we are well-prepared and are hoping to get our eighth district championship in a row this year to go on to regionals.”
Prosper boys earned a combined 152 points to McKinney High School’s 79 and North’s 60. The girls team, who earned 121 points, was narrowly beat by McKinney High School who gathered 141.
Combined totals put Prosper in first place with 273 points, 53 points over second place and a massive 176 points over McKinney North in third.
The next Prosper swim meet is scheduled for Thursday, October 12 at 6:00 p.m. at Denton ISD Natatorium.
