For the first time ever, the boys’ swimming team brought home a trophy from a district swim meet. On Oct. 18, the Wildcats traveled to Indian River State College to compete in the District 5-1A meet where both the boys and girls finished in second place overall. 

Team Captain Dylan Gornto said he’s proud to be a part of a group that has done something special.

“It feels pretty good. It’s great to know that we’ve done something that no swim team at West Shore has done ever,” Gornto said. “The guys won district runner-up for the first time ever. Guys have never won district runner-up at the meet, so it was really impressive our guys were able to pull it off. We have had some really strong swimmers in our past and to know that we’re part of that history is good to know.”

Sophomore Sydney Weatherspoon stood out for the girls’ team recording fastest times for all her respective events and scoring the maximum number of points possible for a swimmer.

“Sydney Weatherspoon won district champion on two individual events and one relay which is really impressive, especially for a sophomore.” Gornto said. “We haven’t had a district champion in a few years, and she’s worked really hard. It’s good to see her hard work pay off.”

Girls’ swimmer Makayla Peterson said she is content with the team’s performance.

“I feel like we did really well,” Peterson said. “We trained really hard, and we got the place we deserved.”

The team will next travel to Orlando’s Lake Highland Prep on Oct. 28 to compete in the regional swim meet.
