High School Wrap Up

Members of the Senior group completed a very successful high school season with ALL swimmers achieving best times in their Sectional and District events.  Buckeye is also celebrating the success of two of our athletes who qualified for the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Swimming Tournament.

Elizabeth Intihar qualified for her first State Championship in the 500 Freestyle, placing 19th in the Division I Girl’s Tournament.  Elizabeth also lowered her team record in the event with a 5:02.43 at the Central District Tournament where she also lowered another of her team records in the 200 Freestyle with a time of 1:54.02.

Jeremy Baggs qualified for the OHSAA State Tournament in both the 200 IM and 500 Freestyle.  Jeremy placed 15th in the 200 IM with a time of 1:59.06 (1:58.70p) and 19th in the 500 Freestyle with a best time of 5:54.92.

Both Jeremy and Elizabeth join Logan Indest as qualifiers for the USA Swimming Central Zone Sectional Championships to be held in Indianapolis, IN at the end of March.


We would like to congratulate all of our high school swimmers on an amazing and successful season!

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.
