Julia Flower placed 3rd in the 200 IM and 2nd in the 100 Fly. Julia’s times continue to improve throughout the season. Julia is currently ranked in the top 8 in two events and the Top 16 in another event.

We made some changes in our Girls relays with our “A” relay placing 4th in the 200 Medley Relay and 3rd in the 400 Freestyle Relay. We have now qualified all three relays for the State Meet.

Devin Esser finished 2nd in the 500 Free and 3rd in the 200 Free. Devin’s times continue to improve. Devin is ranked in the Top 5 in three events in the State.

All of our other swimmers improved some of their times and swam on relays that scored at the meet. I am very proud of everyone.

We still have one State qualifying meet to get more swimmers into the State Meet .

Meet Recap

Our girls had some really good swims, but our lack of numbers can’t compete with the much larger Division I school like Westwood and Gilbert. At this meet we did have a chance to let some of the other girls swim in the scoring heats. Both of our Freestyle Relays were able to beat at least one of the bigger schools.

For the boys, our Freshmen continued to excel in their events. We were down one swimmer, but still managed to score well. Freshman, Devin Esser won the 200 Free and the 100 Fly with some very close competition. Our boys continue to swim well and keep up the the talent from the bigger schools.

Game Recap

Rough night for the Falcons. Short handed and out manned, the game got ugly quickly. Some younger players, Johnathan Morrison and Matthew Africa, are beginning to step up and make a name for themselves. The team will continue to grow and look to get better each of the remaining weeks.

Meet Recap

The Veritas girls team lost a very close meet against Combs on Thursday. It was the first home meet hosted by Veritas in the programs fifth year. Thanks to AIA Swim Official Art Kramer for helping the meet run smoothly.

If not for two disqualifications, the Veritas girls would have won the meet. We changed around some of the events the girls swam and left it to our middle core swimmers to lead the way. They came through with flying colors and we had some great swims.

The Veritas boys team scored the most points of any boys team by hitting the 62 points mark. The boys won all three relays and four of the eight individual events. With only six boy swimmers, we simply don’t have the depth to beat the bigger teams. Combs scored 80 points.

The boys were lead by Senior Wilson Taylor and Freshmen Devin Esser, Ian Rathsburg and Michael Shiaras.
