Area teams leave for state in College Station

For two area teams, a big weekend awaits.

Swimmers from the Coastal Bend Swim League and Cuero Select Track will both depart Thursday for their respective state meets in College Station. TAAF Swimming State Championships will take place at Texas A&M starting Thursday, while the TAAF Track and Field Summer games of Texas are to be held at College Station High School.

Fifty area swimmers have qualified and will make the trek to Texas A&M, with fifteen athletes representing Cuero Select.

TAAF State Championships mark the culmination of the summer sports calendar, as fall sports practices are scheduled to begin in earnest, starting in July.
