Swim teams hitting their marks Area squads back in action Jan. 15 at Putnam City Invitational

MOORE — Halfway through the season, the Southmoore swim team has shown mark improvement from last year. Coach Darin Davis likes what he has seen from his boys and girls team early on.

“This year has been very exciting,” Davis said. “We have doubled the number of swimmers who will be competing as individuals at state from last year, and we still have four to five swimmers who are very close to the state cut. Last year we did not even have enough girls to make a relay team and now they have qualified in two events. It has been great to see our team grow and our swimmers improve.”

The SMH boys are taking first place in Lawton Dec. 14. It was the program’s second ever victory. They are being paced by Duncan Barnhart and Sam Sampson. Tyler Sriver and Mikhael Schisler have also shown steady improvement.

“Reid Hibbs is having another great year as a junior,” Davis said. “He has qualified in every event and should be very competitive at the state meet this year.”

The Southmoore girls also had a strong day at Lawton with a second place finish with Elizabeth Le and Kayla Sriver leading the charge.

Le has qualified for state in every event except for the 500 freestyle. Sriver has qualified in the 50 free and is less than a second away from qualifying in the 100 free as a freshman.

“Elizabeth Le is pushing hard to end her senior year as a top competitor at state,” Davis said. “From the outside looking in, I don’t think that there were a lot of expectations for our team this year other than Reid and Liz. However, as a coach, we still have a long way to go to reach the goals that I set for the program in year two. I am very proud of the effort that our entire team has put forward and we are on track to reach the goals that I envisioned for our team this year.”
