Overall our Section Team had placing 7th out of 9 teams.
With Senior Venessa taking 4th at Sections and 9th Grader Britney taking 2nd, they both qualified for State the following weekend of Sections.
Venessa and Britney both had a great season! Throughout most of swim/dive season, they were placing first and second in almost all our dual meets! Both girls were thrilled to find out that they made it to state (Britney being in second place and Venessa in fourth at sections). Once the girls arrived at the U of M, they both completed prelims with some beautiful dives. With Britney performing 5 dives and Venessa performing 8, it was a great finish to their spectacular season.
The Big Lake Swim & Dive Team had a great season with an overall record in the Mississippi 8 of 2-4 following with many personal bests! Congrats to them all!
