NHS Swim Team Sending Five to State

Five Nacogdoches High School swimmers are bound for the Class 5A Swimming and Diving State Meet Feb. 15-16 in Austin.

Junior Jackson Castleberry was an automatic qualifier, earning a return trip to the state meet by finishing second Saturday in the 100 freestyle, the race he finished in 10th place overall last year at the Class 5A state meet.

The boys medley relay and 400 relay teams also earned berths in the state meet Saturday. The medley relay team of Castleberry, Phil Franke, Tread Woodard and Cooper Hinson finished third, and the 400 relay of Hinson, Castleberry, Zach Fickes and Woodard finished fourth.

The top two places in each regional race earn automatic berths in the state swim meet. The next eight top scores from around the state’s regional meets are also selected, including the two relays from Nacogdoches.
