The First Annual Alice Sprint meet is now history! Coach Duvall had a total of six swimmers attend the meet and for four swimmers, this was their very first swim meet! the swimmers were competing against swimmers from Veterans Memorial, Carroll, Ray, Alice, Gregory Portland, Flour Bluff, Moody, Miller, and Victoria. "I am extremely proud of all of our swimmers!", Coach Duvall noted, "Thanks to Ms. Campos for volunteering as a timer for the meet. We have to have timers for the swimmers. We appreciate you agreeing to time for the swimmers! In addition, thanks to Mr. Merrifield for donating drinks and breakfast for the swimmers. They really enjoyed everything!"
Coach Duvall sees a lot of potential for the future, "These times are extremely close. I know that the top four swimmers will vary as the swimmers work hard and their times drop. I am looking forward to our next meet!"
