Joseph Jaime wins gold

The Clark swim team had a great showing at the Regional Finals on February 10th and 11th with one Cougar headed to state. Clark junior Joseph Jaime swam the 200 Freestyle at the Regional Finals in a remarkable 1:41.47, earning him 1st place overall and the honor of  representing our Clark Cougars at the State meet at U.T. Austin Swim Center February 24th and 25th. Joseph also placed 3rd in the 100 freestyle with a time that qualifies him to compete in that event at state also. Congratulations Joseph!

Five of 6 Clark relays made it to “A” finals, which consists of the top 8 finishers from preliminaries. The sixth relay (Women’s 400 free relay) made it to“B”finals and consisted of 3 Clark swimmers very new to the pressure cooker of 5-A Regional finals – they stepped up on the blocks like pros and swam with heart and determination.

Additional Clark swimmers going to Finals in individual events: Michael Macha- 4th in breaststroke and 5th in fly, Daniel Lee- 6th in both the 200 IM and breaststroke, Andreas Sanchez – 7th place backstroke, Allie Green- 11th in 100 free and 13th in 50 free, Lauren Cartee- 12th in breaststroke, Mitch Jacobs – 10th in the 200 IM and 12th in the 500 free, Brad Ogden- 15th in the 100 free, Jesse Renteria- 10th in fly and Alex Peacock- 11th in diving.

The Clark regional qualifiers were:  Lauren Cartee, Coral Crouch, Allie Green, Bailey Ratner, Rachel Deschner, Ashlyn Lewis, Mitch Jacobs, Joseph Jaime, Daniel Lee, Michael Macha, Brad Ogden, Alex Peacock (diver), Jesse Renteria, Marielle Rominger, Andreas Sanchez, Chris Sanders and Darren Sanchez.
