Bishop Dunne Swimmers Achieve New School Record
Bishop Dunne Head Swim Coach Robbie Zeske is happy with the results of the last weekend’s state swim meet held in the Josh Davis Natatorium in San Antonio.
“Our first race was the Men’s 200 Medley Relay,” Coach Zeske said. “Freshman Thomas Lincoln led off the blocks with a 50 Backstroke, Junior Miles Barksdale swam 50 Breaststroke, Sophomore Elijah Recinos completed the 50 Butterfly and Senior Tre’jzon Blair anchored with 50 Freestyle. Their time of 2:03.64 was their best by almost four seconds.”
Next, Elijah Recinos swam an individual event of the 100 Butterfly. Elijah managed to swim his personal best by almost one whole second, finishing 7th overall with a 58.39. “That’s an incredibly fast swim and he is only a sophomore!” Coach Zeske said.
The Falcons 200 Men’s Free Relay team placed twelfth out of sixteen teams, but each swimmer beat their previous best time. Senior Tre’jzon Blair led the team with a 27.56, Freshman Thomas Lincoln swam a 25.64, Junior Kyle Sivinski made it to the wall in 28.49 and Sophomore Elijah Recinos finished in a very quick 24.10. The result: a 1:46.10 total time and a new school record for the Falcons.
Coach Zeske is proud of the progress her team of young swimmers has accomplished this season, and looks forward to next year. “These students put in many months of long hours and dedication. We had a good year and a lot of personal bests. I know we’ll be even better next year.”
