West Junior Close To Making VISD Sports History

Vivian Shepherd First VISD Girls Swimmer At State

A West junior will make VISD sports history Friday morning.

Vivian Shepherd will become the first VISD girls swimmer to compete at the state meet. Shepherd qualified at regionals in both the 200 yard individual medley and 100 yard breaststroke. Shepherd also is the first VISD swimmer, male or female, to qualify in two different events. Vivian told our Sean Coffey what her mindset is entering the state meet.

“I think I’m just gonna go in, give it my all, and whatever the results are I’m just gonna be happy about it.”

West’s Vivian Shepherd swims in the state 5A prelims Friday morning at 10:00 at the UT Swimming Center in Austin.
