Swim Team Wins 24th Consecutive City Title

The CHS Swim Team won its 24th consecutive city title on Sunday, November 3 in a record-setting performance at the city swim meet at Ketchum Fitness Center.

The Bears set a new team record for points at a city meet by scoring 611 points throughout the meet. The team also set new City Meet records in the 200 medley relay and 200 free relay. The Bears won all three relays as well as six out of eight individual events to make the team victorious in 9 out of 11 events. The Bears also had 10 other swims in the top three of their events. Colin Bone (200 free & 500 free) and Nick Seagraves (100 free & 100 Back) were dual winners.

Colin Bone was voted Swimmer of the Meet by the other team coaches at the meet.

The team is now 6-0 on the season. The Bears are off for the next two weekends and will swim next at the preliminary races of the 5A LHSAA State Championships in Sulphur, Louisiana on Friday, November 22.

íÍIt was a great city meet and a great warm up for state meet in three weeks. Coach Jimmy Roberts and I could not be more proud of the way the team acted at the meet, cheered for and supported one another and swam incredibly fast. It was by far the most dominant performance at city meet in school history,íñ commented CHS Head Swimming Coach Doug Logsdon í´02. íÍThe team remains focused in pursuit of our 3rd state championship in school history on November 22 and 23 in Sulphur.íñ
