Grace Hosts Invitational Swim Meet at East Texas Aquatics

This past Saturday, Grace hosted an Invitational Swim Meet at East Texas Aquatics. There were 125 swimmers competing representing 15 public and private schools from all over the East Texas Area. The Grace girls placed third overall just 5 points behind Lufkin High School and 15 points behind first place Hudson High School. The Grace boys team placed 5th, 11 points behind fourth place Lufkin. With only 5 girls swimming for Grace, they had to step up and put in some big swims—and they did! The Grace boys team is made up of freshmen and sophomores. They put up almost all personal best times, but just got outsized by the number of junior and senior boys competing against them. It was an exciting meet with several of the races being decided by .01 of a second. Congratulations to the Grace swimmers on an excellent meet!
