   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.”

Van Vleck Senior Cameron Franklin signed to play for Prairie View A&M Panthersput in a ceremony at the VVISD Gym on Friday, Feb. 5. Franklin was a two-way football standout as a sophomore and junior at safety and wide receiver. An injury sidelined Franklin during his senior season - a major blow to the Leopards game plan - but an electric highlight tape from his junior season and first-class character made Franklin an easy student to recruit, said Van Vleck school officials. " It’s a blessing to be able to play the sport that I love at the next level " said Cameron, who plans to study Sports Administration at Prairie View A&M.
