   The swim teams traveled to San Antonio for the Region VII-5A Swimming & Diving Championships Thursday, Feb. 4 for girls, and Saturday, Feb. 6, for the boys.  
   “Our girls made the most of their swims!  Each time we hit the water in finals, we came out with a top-ten finish,” said BCHS Swim Coach Bob Button.
   “To be 11th in the team scoring for the entire region with these four girls says an awful lot about them and their commitment to each other and our school,” he said.
   “It’s probably not a quote you’ll see when a coach describes a group of young ladies, but all I could think of when they were battling it out in finals Thursday night was how darned tough they were.
   “Our butterfly swimmers led the way individually, with Glory Vargas and Chris Peralta both making the championship final in the 100 fly.”
   Button also pointed out that distance swimmers Megan Moya and Matthew Brooks each took their consolation finals in the 500 free.  
   “Each did a great job of being aggressive and getting out in front early, but still having enough left to any late-movers.”
   The boys matched the girls with outstanding relay swims in the big 8 championship finals, Button noted.  
   “That 400 free relay 4th place finish helped put us into 8th place in team scoring.
   “Our parent support up in the stands was unmatched. The kids saw plenty of blue and gold up there.”
