District Swim Meet Highlights Top FISD Athletes

Jan 22, 2018

A few minutes after getting thrown into the pool Saturday, Frisco High School swimming coach Andy Stewart had changed into dry clothes but was still soaking up the moment. His boys team had just won the District 10-5A Swimming and Diving title, and as he described the accomplishment, he complimented the entire district.

Boys 10-5A Swimming Team Winners“The boys had to beat some really good teams,” Stewart said. “Anyone in the top four could win a lot of other districts.”

That was true for all the boys and girls swimming and diving teams that competed in the 10-5A Swimming Championships on Saturday at FISD’s Bruce Eubanks Natatorium. Frisco High won the boys competition with 105 points, holding off runner-up Liberty High (95). Wakeland High won the girls team title with 112 points and Frisco High was second with 100.

Zach Gnoza, the interim coach of Wakeland’s girls team during Melissa Howard’s maternity leave, also got thrown into the pool by his swimmers as part of the celebration. He was happy with the way the young Wakeland team finished strong.

Girls 10-5A Swimming Team Winners“They came in here and they knew what they had to do,” Gnoza said. “The majority of these kids are freshmen and sophomores, so there’s a lot of potential for the future.”

The immediate future for the FISD teams is the Region III Championship Meet, which will be Feb. 2-3 at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium. The top six finishers in each event at the 10-5A meet qualified for regional competition.

“The heartbreaking thing is that there are kids who finished seventh in this district who would’ve won other districts,” said Stewart, who was named the 10-5A Swimming Coach of the Year for both boys and girls.
