4A UIL Champs and State Swim Results

Congratulations to the Stratford Boys' Swim Team, back-to-back State 4A UIL Champions!  Pictured: Coaches Mike Hoscovic and Jaime Denton celebrate with the team. After a season described by head swim coach Mike Hoskovec as long and wild, the Stratford High men’s swimming team successfully defended its Class 4A state title on Saturday. Going into the state meet held at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swim Center in Austin, Hoskovec said that Frisco Wakeland had the early upper hand with a 50-point margin if all state swimmers medaled as predicted, based on their individual seeding.

The Spartans, however, rose to the challenge. With only the freestyle relay left to swim, Stratford had a 172-171 point advantage. With relay scoring giving 40 points for first place, 34 for second place, and 32 for third place, the situation was set for the final event race: The winner of the 400 freestyle relay would be the state champion!
