High School Swimming
TWHS Boys & Girls Swimming Finish 2nd at UIL State
Originally Appeared on Vype
The Woodlands' community has enjoyed a lot of swim success over the years. McCullough, which was the area's high school before The Woodlands opened in 1996, won six state championships (four girls and two boys) before it was turned into a Conroe ISD junior high. To no one's surprise, Highlanders' athletes have continued the tradition with 10 titles of their own (six boys and four girls).
The expectation was there when The Woodlands arrived at the University of Texas' Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center for Saturday's UIL 6A championship meet. The girls were going for a three-peat, while the boys were going for their first title since 2010.
The program ultimately fell short of the ultimate prize, but Lillie Nordmann and Tyler Hulet still made a splash in the pool. They picked up early wins, which set up the teams' runner-up finish in the boys (216 points) and girls' (221 points) divisions. Nordmann topped the Girls' 200 yard freestyle with a 1:45.55 time, and Hulet recorded a 48.82 in the Boys' 100 yard backstroke.
