The Fairmont Relays showcased some of the State’s best swimmers from Beavercreek, Centerville, and Springboro. With several Warriors out serving on J-Term Mission Trip, the remaining Warriors embodied their moniker and became “Warriors of the Water”.
Going into the meet, Coach Tom was hoping for a 5th Place finish from the boys while predicting a 6th Place finish. The Warrior men fought for every point and in the end, it was the depth and quality of that depth that propelled the Warriors to a 4th Place Finish! And for good measure, the team of Elijah Joyce, Nathanial Geiss, Andrew Haines, and Andrew Simmons again lowered the school record in the 400 Freestyle Relay!
The Lady Warriors battled stroke for stroke with State caliber competition and finished tied for 10th.
The Warriors of the Water ask that you be in prayer for them as 26 of the 44 Warriors will be out on J-Term Missions Trips and Education Trips. Pray for safety as they travel and for the hearts of those they will come in contact with that they be receptive to God’s Word. Pray for those members who will get more attention from their coaches in practice that much will be accomplished and everyone will stay healthy.
Our next meet is Saturday, January 12th at the West Carrollton YMCA. This meet is unofficially called the battle of the practice pool as we will square off against Alter, Valley View, and West Carrollton – all teams that we share practice time with. The meet will begin at 6:00pm.
