The Dobie Swim Team has been to four swim meets since the competition season started on Sept. 29...with mixed results. 

The swim team lost many of their experienced swimmers because it was time for them to leave the pack and graduate.

“We lost a lot of seniors from last year that made the team solid,” said swimmer Sophia Colmenares, “…but I believe that the swimmers who will replace them will maintain the teams effectiveness.”

 The team had a the Ghouls in the Pool competition Oct. 20 at Deer Park High School. The Longhorns took sixth place out of 16 schools that participated.

On Oct. 23 the Horns geared up for another competition in Angleton, where they took second place. 

“We haven’t done great,” said Jeffrey Wilson “…but I feel confident that as our team continues competing we will also continue to improve.”

The Longhorns will grab their gear and prepare for their next battle on Nov. 13 at Shadow Creek High School.
