The Glenvar swim team has a busy week as the regular season nears a close. The Highlanders have three meets in three days against Cave Spring, Hidden Valley and William Byrd.
On Monday at the Gator Center the Highlanders swam against the Knights. Despite setting 20 personal records on the evening the Highlander boys and girls fell to a strong Cave Spring team. Top three finishers on the night included Kaylin Paitsel, Brooklyn Woolwine, Isabelle Pope, Macy Westland, Cooper Campbell, Delaney Eller, Natalie McMahon, Adrianna Hall, Tucker Henderson, and Carly Wilkes.
Glenvar was at the Salem Y on Tuesday to swim against Hidden Valley, followed by a return trip to the Gator Center Wednesday to meet William Byrd. Like all Glenvar teams, the Highlanders are only competing against Roanoke County rivals during the regular season. Swim coach Shannon Hall is hoping that rule changes tonight when the Roanoke County School Board meets to decide whether to allow teams to compete against non-county opponents in regional and state events. Glenvar is the defending Class 1 & 2 state champion in girls’ swimming.
“If they vote yes we swim in our regional championship Saturday evening,” said Hall. “That’s cutting it down to the wire.”
