Bishop Dunne Senior Kyle Sivinski isn't afraid of challenges. He loves to cliff dive and does it often at Lake Witney. He joined the Falcon swim team as a diver, then learned the proper strokes to become one of the fastest swimmers on the team and captain this year.
Kyle Michael Sivinski Was Born to Swim.
Kyle spent most weekends swimming and playing at a lake near his home, but didn’t realize it was a sport until he came to Bishop Dunne.
A graduate of St. Joseph’s in Waxahachie, Kyle followed his sister, Katie, a 2013 Bishop Dunne graduate, to Bishop Dunne. A year later his mother, Becky, arrived as the Assistant Athletic Director in charge of women’s sports.
In his sophomore year, Coach Robbie Zeske learned Kyle liked to swim, and invited him to try out for the team. He had to learn the correct strokes to compete and soon he was winning his races in the pool. By his junior year he was the featured athlete on the cover of the Winter Media Guide, and this year he is captain of the swim team, which had their best year yet since Coach Zeske took the helm. He actually joined the swim team so that he could be a diver. He’s not afraid of heights and loves to dive off cliffs. TAPPS did away with competitive diving, so Coach Zeske asked him to try swimming.
When not studying for classes or practicing his strokes in the pool, Kyle can be found volunteering at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. An altar boy for years, he’s been a peer minister and a confirmation teacher for the past three years, and helps to run the youth retreats. His empathy is obvious. He proudly admits he is a science nerd, and looks forward to using this interest in his future career to help others. Kyle hopes to become a lawyer, neurosurgeon or EMT once he graduates from college. His plan is to attend Navarro College for a year to save money and then transfer into Texas A&M. He always wants to help and is happy to do so. Twice a week he is a reading tutor at Roger Q. Mills Elementary through the national Reading Partners program.
