Frisco ISD athletes won 11 individual and relay titles at the three-day Class 5A Region 3 Swimming and Diving Meet, which finished Saturday at Bruce Eubanks Natatorium.
A total of 51 FISD athletes qualified for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Swimming and Diving Meet, which will be Feb. 16-17 at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swim Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The state qualifiers were part of a long list of FISD swimmers who were finalists at the 5A Region Meet.
“If you looked at the top eight in the final, in many of them, Frisco ISD had four of five spots represented,” said Frisco High swim coach Andy Stewart. “It speaks volumes.”
FISD’s strength in swimming and diving also showed in the team standings.
Six FISD girls teams finished in the top 10: Wakeland (second), Frisco (third), Liberty (sixth), Reedy (seventh), Lone Star (eighth) and Centennial (tenth). Six FISD boys teams were in the top 10: Frisco (second), Reedy (third), Wakeland (fourth), Liberty (fifth), Centennial (eighth) and Heritage (ninth).
Liberty senior Jiwoo Oh set a 5A Region 3 record in the 100-yard breaststroke with his time of 57.43 seconds.
