Girls Varsity Swim & Dive
|Oakton High School||186|
MCLEAN, VA – Oakton Swim/Dive has had another successful week for the 2017-2018 season. The girls’ team walked away with a victory over Langley HS at Spring Hill Recreation Center -- 186 points to 126 points.
Despite the absence of 12 swimmers, usually top scorers, for club team invitational meets, the Cougar girls showed their incredible depth and didn’t skip a beat. Sophomore Lily Chireix earned her first victory on the board at her second meet. Oakton was able to take home victories in the 200 medley, 200 freestyle, and 400 freestyle relays over the Saxons. Juniors Alexus Chua, who swam the 200 and 500 freestyle, and Evelyn Pickett, who swam the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly, filled in for missing teammates and earned first place for both of their individual events. Freshman Lindsey Kotarski dropped lifetime bests in both the 200 freestyle and 100 breaststroke to contribute to the 60-point win over Langley.
With the return of their 12 absent team mates, Oakton is hoping to have yet another successful meet before winter break begins. Due to the cancellation of all FCPS activities, Oakton Swim/Dive will no longer be swimming in the Concorde Invitational. The Cougars will next be going to Audrey Moore Recreation Center to swim in a tri-meet with Thomas Jefferson High School and Mount Vernon High School at 6 pm on Friday, December 15.
