Saturday February 11th, 2017, Josh Davis Natatorium – San Antonio, Texas
This past weekend in San Antonio, eight VS Vikings competed in the TAPPS State
Division 1 Swimming Championships at the Josh Davis Natatorium. This was the first
year the Vikings were competing in Division I as TVS is now a 6A School. Even the fire
alarm going off in the hotel late Friday night couldn’t stop the awesome performance of
the Vikings.

The ending result was extraordinary as the Viking Swimmers were able to surpass last
year’s point total from Division 2 State Championships and bring home three individual

Olivia G secured the silver medal in the women’s 50 free and a bronze medal in the 100
free. Hanadi A was also able to place 8th in the 500 Free.

Mac B took the bronze in the 100 Back while also placing 5th in the 200 IM.

Tom N was able to take 9th place in the 100 Free and bring home individual points for
the Vikings as well.

All four relay teams were able to score points. On the girl’s side they placed 5th in both
the 200 and 400 Free Relays. The Viking Men were able to take 7th in the 200 Medley
Relay and 9th in the 200 Free Relay.

Congratulations to all of the Viking swimmers who participated in our first go at State
