This sets a new all time record for any school in any sport in Texas – 10 straight state championships!  Congratulations to Allison Arnold, Zoe Chang, Emma Gruber, Tanner Harris, Meredith Kelly & Katie Streepey in their support of the HP victory.  DM Swimmer’s had a hand in (for the third straight year) 100% of the swimming points scored by the state champions!


A big congratulations also goes out to Allsion Arnold for being only the third swimmer in Texas State High School swimming history to earn eight individual gold medals during a four year high school career.  Can you name the other two swimmers who also accomplished this amazing feat?  They also swam for the Mustangs.........Codie Hansen (Arlington Lamar) and Candace Blackman (Highland Park).


Great Going Mustangs!
