Hawk Swim Team Qualifies 12 for Regionals

Cassidy Felps ready for personal bests at District.

Canyon Lake’s Swimming Team had their best showing since their inception as they will be sending 12 athletes to the Region Meet next week in Rosenberg on Thursday.

“Saying that we had an Extremely Successful District Meet on Friday would be a huge understatement,” Head Swimming Coach Kim Moses divided the Red Sea. “We are so proud of every swim team member and look forward to our next steps.”

The Boy’s team had a 4th place finish while the ladies finished in the 9th spot as the team standing was an impressive 6th place at the meet.

A Swimming team will have to compete with larger schools on many occasions since not every school will have a swim team.

This is much like the Hawk Soccer teams have dealt with since that sport started during the opening of the School. However, with the soccer, as year’s have passed there are more schools starting teams which has brought the districts down to a more reasonable group in size to compete.

Italian Garden Says Go CL Hawks

Schools like Boerne Champion and Alamo Heights will give you a taste of those larger schools and then a kicker in not having the ability to have a diving portion for the Hawks will put them behind the 8-Ball when garnering points against competition that can sweep those events with CL not having a dog in that fight.

Now having a team effort that like the one this past week-end puts a whole different flavor of the accomplishments for Canyon Lake’s Swim Team and finishing in those places mentioned above.

Last year, the Hawks Boys placed 10th overall and the Ladies finished in 12th place which was the all-time best at that time. This year’s group now have some team bests for future CL teams to swim for.

“We will be returning 20 swimmers for the 2017-18 season,” Coach Moses said with an exclamation point! Another sport that is on the rise at the Hawk Nest.

There were several swimmers that had personal bests as Alex Borremans broke two school records while qualifying for Regionals in the 50 Free and 100 Free events.

The Boy’s 200 Free Relay broke the school record on their swimming into the Regional Meet next week too. (Taylor Isley, Dante Ortega, Josh White, and Alex Borremans)

Borremans will be busy this next week as he qualified for Regionals on the one’s mentioned above plus the Boys 200 Medley Relay too.

Canyon Lake swam a total of 55 times and came away with personal bests on 43 of those races.
