Woods Swim Team Competes in the 10th Annual Holiday Relay Meet, the first ever swim meet for the Woods Team
The University of Houston Pool was the perfect location for this relay meet of four hundred swimmers from private middle and high schools around Houston. The Woods team was the smallest team in the meet with nine swimmers; the largest team was from the British International School with sixty-five swimmers. A total of fourteen high school teams and nine middle school teams competed in this meet. School of the Woods entered both a High School and Middle School team with several of the Middle School swimmers competing with the High School Team.
The Woods Team competed in 9 of the 27 events. Their best result came in the Middle School 3 by 50 back stroke relay, the team finished in 3rd place. It was fun to watch the teams dive off the blocks and then rotate onto their backs prior to taking their first stroke - not your typical backstroke race.
The team took 4th place in the High School Mixed (2 boys, 2 girls) Freestyle Relay. The final event of the day was a 6 by 25 yard Middle School Freestyle Relay. All 6 middle school swimmers competed and the team came in 5th out of 19 relay teams.
The team had a great time swimming together and representing School of the Woods in their first every swim meet.
