SEM Swimmers Record Personal Best at Championship Finals
SEM Swimmers Record Personal Best at Championship Finals
SEM freshman, Claire Agee, and senior, Jimmy Holmes, both record personal best times in their swims at the UIL 5A Regional Championships swim competition held in Lewisville on February 5 - 6.
Claire Agee had her personal best time in 50 free finals. She placed 11th in both the 50 freestyle and the 100 fly. Her proudest and most rewarding swim at the intense Regional Championship meet was helping her team to reach third place in the 200 medley, where, as anchor leg, she chased down the field from fifth place to finish in third place. As a freshman, this is Claire's first year on the Woodrow Wilson swim team. She really enjoyed making close friends with Jimmy and meeting new friends on the team. It was also fun for her to reconnect with many of the girls that she started swimming with at age 6. She didn't expect to place so high at the Regional Championship finals in all her events as a freshman, and she is excited about swimming again next year for her home school, Woodrow Wilson.
Senior Jimmy Holmes made the most of his final swim with Woodrow Wilson, recording his personal best times in three of four events during Friday's prelims and setting new personal bests in all four of his events at the finals on Saturday. Jimmy's results at the Regional Championship Finals were 14th in backstroke, tenth in 200 freestyle, fifth with his 200 freestyle relay and sixth with his 400 freestyles relay team (recording the fastest team splits in both relay swims). Jimmy is glad to be done with the early morning practices but plans to incorporate a swim regimen into his routine going forward...just at more reasonable times. Looking back over the last three years on the Woodrow Wilson swim team, Jimmy enjoyed making new friends from Woodrow, reconnecting with former middle school classmates and getting to spend time with other Townview swimmers.
