St. John's Swimming & Diving showed up loud and proud at the 2020 SPC Championships garnering their third consecutive Girls' SPC championship and a runner-up Boys' finish. "GOOOOOOO!" When you hear the yell, you know St. John's is in the pool. At every meet it's there, and at the SPC Swimming and Diving Championships the volume got a little higher, especially during the last two races of the day, the 400 yard relays. Assistant Coach Richard Butler is the man behind the voice. Sometimes there is a pause, but only when the Mavericks are out of the water. At the 2020 SPC Championships the Mavericks gave him plenty to yell for as the Girls' won their third consecutive title and the Boys' finished runner-up.
St. John's Wrestling entered the 2020 SPC Championships as the heavy favorite. The Mavericks were already back-to-back Prep State and State Duals champions, and were sending a program record of eight wrestlers to the Prep Nationals the following week. While they had won the previous four SPC championships, they could not just show up and win. They would need a total team effort against an improved field that had an advantage with a small number of teams. The scoring system for a small meet such as SPC did not necessarily favor the Mavericks, winners of six SPC and five state championships. With only nine total teams competing, less points would be spread out amongst the field, and one or two teams could garner most of the tallies. Entering the finals those two teams were St. John's and Episcopal. In the recent Texas Prep State meet for comparison, there were about three times as many schools in the mix and St. John's won going away, 90.5 points ahead of 6th place Episcopal. The SPC meet left nothing to chance for St. John's. Episcopal was much improved from a year ago when St. John's had a 90 point lead going to the finals. Today it was only 20.
