It was time to dive into the pool for the St. Pius X swimmers this past weekend.
Swimmers from St. Pius X traveled over to the Bellaire Cardinal Classic, which was hosted at Lamar High School on Saturday morning. Check out some of the best photos from VYPE Photographer Bradley Collier.

There is a lot of newness around St. Pius X. A new head football coach, new volleyball coach, new boys' basketball coach and to top it all off – a new athletic director.
Jeff Feller, who comes from KIPP Texas Public Schools - Houston, is just a few months into what he considers a "dream job".
"The parental support has been amazing, and the booster club has been amazing," Feller said. "Leadership, both my Head of School Carmen Armistead and principal Diane Larsen have been amazing. Everyone has been extremely welcoming and supportive. Having that team collaboration is what is going to build a successful athletic program.
"We have everything here on this campus. Academically with strong teachers, fine arts and athletics to make the student-athletes and all students their best selves possible."
Feller spent the past seven years at KIPP. The first four he served in multiple roles, including athletic director, head baseball coach and associate head football coach. He also coached softball and track at times at KIPP Generations Collegiate. The last three years were served as the Regional Athletic Director.
Leaving a school he had worked at for the past seven years was going to take a special place – St. Pius X fit the bill.
"The prestige and athletic tradition that has been built here for the past several years," Feller said about what attracted him to this job. "I just wanted to be a part of that family and that legacy."
