VISD Girls Swimming District Preview

East, West Host District Friday

VISD girls swimmers, getting ready for the district meet Friday.
Four West girls, Cristina Cervantes, Gwen and Vivian Sheperd, and Emma Pratka, are seeded first or second in all their races. VISD swimming and diving head coach Jon Walden told me the Warrior girls should make a run at El Campo for the district team title. Coach Walden also told me Daisy Caltzonzin of East should qualify for regionals in more than one event. I talked with Daisy and Nationals qualifyer Cristina Cervantes.

Said Cristina, “There’s been time improvements. There’s been different technique work that I haven’t done in the past years that have helped a lot. We started a new training program as a whole.”

Said Daisy, “They’re very motivated. A lot of them seem to be really pushing it at practice.”

VISD swimmers go for district titles at the VISD Aquatic Center Friday afternoon at 2:00.
