Bay City shines at Lamar Consolidated meet
The Bay City Swim and Dive team competed at the Lamar Consolidated ISD 5A and Under Invitational recently and Bay City came away with a 10th place finish out of 20 teams entered.
“I was very pleased with the way our kids got out there and raced hard,” said Bay City Head Swim Coach Bob Button. “We’re asking a lot from our freshmen and sophomores, as they’re being thrown into varsity competition with very little experience. They’re a coach-able group and they’re learning quickly.
“We have some technical things to work on, mostly with respect to our turns, and we’re still getting our feel for the water back after being out of the pool for much of the last few weeks,” Button said.
Bay City Head Diving Coach Clare Button also added that the meet allowed Bay City to see where they were as a team right now.
“We got a good look at some good competition,” said Clare Button. “Our divers know what to expect if they’re going to stay competitive.”
