The Class 3A State Championships are now in the records books and we have some big winners from the final class of state championships! Besides all of the newly crowned individual champions, the team race was electrifying.
Women’s Team Champions: Creekside
You could just feel the presence of Creekside on the pool deck as race after race and relay after relay was either won or highly contested. This squad is young and hungry and it definitely showed throughout the meet as they claimed the team title behind a win in the 200 medley relay and individual efforts across the board.
Women’s Team Runner-Up: Bartram Trail
The Bartram Trail team was led by absolute studs like Summer Stanfield and Lilly McCabe throughout the meet. Those individuals performances led them to an incredible runner-up finish on the night with much more promised to come out of a group mostly consisting of 11th graders.
Men’s Team Champions: Chiles
As if we were playing a record, the Chiles men’s team has won another team title. Last year, they handily won by over 60 points and this year they better that by beating the runner-up by almost double. Chiles came into the meet swinging with big guns like Ryland Sun who claimed countless titles along with John Yambor-Maul stepping into his 50/100 competitive gears. The Chiles guys again claim the state team title.
Men’s Team Runner-Up: Doral
Doral came into the meet with a deep team and they showed off by not necessarily winning events, but competing heavily and placing high in almost everything. While no clear stars were on the team to start the night, we ended the night knowing names like Aaron Rodriguez and Adrian Aguilar after they capped off an incredible runner-up finish by winning the 400 free relay.
