The Bay City High School Swim Team competed in the Coastal Bend Texas Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association Zone Meet Friday and Saturday in Corpus Christi.

Bay City was eighth overall out of the 14 schools that competed with a combined team score (boys’ and girls’ points combined) of 176. Points were awarded to individuals that finished in the top 16 places.

The Bay City boys were sixth in their division with 131 points while the girls were ninth with 45 points.

“We didn’t swim as well as expected in Friday’s prelims.  I guess it could have been the long bus ride and/or the heavy training over the break,” Bay City Coach Bob Button said. “We came back much better in Saturday’s finals.  We had quite a few season and lifetime bests.”

Ashton Wallace had the top finish for Bay City. He finished second in the boys’ 1-meter diving event with 134.60 points.
