Area athletes shine at the 5A-Region 1 Swimming & Diving Championships

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There’s no question – this was a huge weekend for our local swimmers and divers.

There were 48 teams here in the Hub City on Saturday for the 5A-Region 1 Swimming and Diving Championships out at the Pete Ragus Aquatic Center.

This was the meet that every athlete had trained for all year, the meet that gave them the chance to go to state championships.

Our Lubbock schools were well represented at the meet - a few of them even clinched their tickets to the State meet in Austin.
