Swim Team Hosts Relay Meet at SBISD Nat

By Julianna Fernandez, 10/09/23, 3:15PM CDT


The Stratford Swim Team kicked off their season Saturday, October 7th , at a fun, all-relay meet against Memorial, Spring Woods, and Bridgeland. Per tradition, we were missing most of the juniors as this relay always falls on an SAT date.

Relays swam included a variety of non-traditional races such as the 3x100 IM, the 500 free with 5 swimmers swimming in a crescendo pattern (50, 100, 200, 100, 50), 4x100 free with fins, and ending with the most entertaining to watch….the traditional t-shirt 8x25 relay.
