VYPE U: College Park Swim Makes a Splash at Districts
The College Park varsity swim and dive team competed at the annual District 13-6A competition on January 23rd. A small, socially distanced, group of parents and supporters lined the bleacher stands to cheer on the Cavaliers to a victory. Both the boys and girls teams turned in strong performances and finished in 2nd place. They defeated Oak Ridge, Grand Oaks, Conroe, and Willis. The team ultimately fell short to the nationally ranked, The Woodlands swim team who came in 1st place.
