Boys Varsity Swimming · Blue Valley West Swim Meet Results


The meet at Blue Valley West was one in which many of the swimmers were stretched beyond their comfort zones.  They were challenged to do something new, because sometimes we all don’t realize our potential until we are pushed passed what we are comfortable doing.  Race after race, the swimmers were crushing personal bests.  This is what it’s all about!  We’ve studied the sport of swimming all season.  We’ve raced a variety of races.  We’ve experienced success, we’ve experienced frustration, we’ve experienced some pain.  All of this has helped shape us into the athletes we are today.  Don’t ever tire of getting better and don’t ever lose focus of all you can achieve.  Well done, De Soto Wildcats!  Here is an overview of the point winning races from BVW:
