With the fall season coming to an end, the Boys’ Swimming and Diving team has conquered several of their goals. Chaska Cox-Potter, Philip Tso, and Wyatt Martin all qualified for state early in the season. The three of them plus Christopher Tobar then participated in the 200 Medley Relay on September 21, breaking a school record that has been standing since 1983. 

Along with that, Philip Tso and Chaska Cox-Potter dominated in the 100 Backstroke, breaking a school record that was standing since 1999.  Tso also qualified for the 100-meter fly.

Recently, Cox-Potter also broke a 1990 school record for the 100m breaststroke. “I was extremely excited to have broken the school record and was just as thrilled as that time bettered my state and national rankings. We all knew we could break records and there is a sense of relief when your goal is accomplished,” Cox-Potter stated.

While the team’s season has been challenging, they have broken three school records, and they are all pleased that their hard work has paid off.
