Boys Varsity Swim & Dive
|Oakton High School||187|
MCLEAN, VA – Oakton Swim/Dive has had another successful week for the 2017-2018 season. The boys’ team walked away with a victory over Langley HS at the Spring Hill Recreation Center -- 187 points to 128 points.
Despite the absence of 12 swimmers, usually top scorers, for club team invitational meets, the Cougars showed their incredible depth and didn’t skip a beat. On the boys’ side, junior Albert Xu and senior Devin Gardner were double winners in both of their individual events, 200 and 500 freestyle for Xu and 50 and 100 freestyle for Gardner, leading the way to first place wins for all four freestyle events. Junior Sam Walters had a five second drop from his lifetime best in the 200 freestyle, in addition to his third place swim. Freshman Carl Blakney earned third place in the 100 butterfly with an impressive time drop as well. The boys finally ended the meet with first, second, and third place finishes in the 400 freestyle relay.
With the return of their 12 swimmers, 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.
