SPRING, Texas, (February 10, 2020) – The Frassati Catholic Girls Swim team took second place in the February 6, 2020 TAPPS Division II State Championships, the highest team placement yet for the emerging swim powerhouse. Frassati Catholic swimmers brought home twelve medals overall at the event, including four golds, six silver, and two bronze to cap off an incredibly successful day at the Josh Davis Natatorium in San Antonio, TX.
Last year, the St. Pius X swim teams took a pair of boys relay teams to state. The hope is to take an even a bigger contingent to the final meet of the year this season.
Led by coach Jessica Peterson, the St. Pius X swim program brings back some firepower. Daniella Young enters her fourth year on the swim team as the best breaststroker and team captain. Matthew Mason is the best freestyler and Chris Cano is the best butterflyer.
A breakout star could be freshman Stephanie Birkelbach, who could be the team's best medley swimmer with a high chance to make it to state.
