Backstroke

At Regionals on Saturday Gus Respondek finished in third place in the 25-yard backstorke earning a spot at the State meet. 

 

At the Regional Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAFF) meet El Campo swimmers had big performances Saturday in the Woodlands, with many punching their ticket to the state. 

To earn a spot at the state meet as a swimmer under the age of 14 you needed to place inside the top three in your event at Regionals.

El Campo youth swimmers (non-high school) had three first-place finishes. Kyndahl Pierce finished first in two events in the 50-yard freestyle and 25-yard butterfly. Overall the youth swimmers will compete in seven different events at state next Thursday in College Station.

“It was a good meet,” Red Wave Coach Richard Nava said. “We had a lot of personal best times. A lot of kids did their best. As long as the kids are swimming personal best times I’m happy.”
