Welcome to the 2018-2019 Swim Season!
While our season will be dedicated to Coach Vince, we are excited to have Jared Price as our head coach.
BOYS TAKE STATE! Congratulations to our Boys team for working hard all season to WIN the state title for the first time in 22 years!
GIRLS TAKE HOME 2ND! Our girls team fought until the end and never gave up but came up just short of the blue trophy. We are proud of every athlete on this team, and we cannot compete without each of you!
IT'S GO TIME!
Good luck to all our swimmers at the state meet Friday and Saturday. Can't wait to see how this incredible season finishes.
Details about the state meet can be found on the NMAA site. This includes the programs, start times, ticket prices, and parking.
For streaming information see NFHS Network.
Our banquet evite was sent out. If you did not receive it, first check your spam folder, your athlete's email, and any other parent emails that were given to us this season.
CONGRATULATIONS TO BOYS ON THEIR DISTRICT WIN!!!
The results of all of our meets are posted under Times Results and Records. We have had a great season, filled with fun and laughter along with some really cool swimming. Jack Hoagland finished his quest for setting EVERY SINGLE La Cueva Boys swim record...YES! Every single event now has only ONE name listed for the boys. What an amazing accomplishment!
This is the end of the season for some of you. We all cannot thank you enough for a phenomenal season. Jared and Jack joined us this season and continued the fun and excitement, which we know was scattered with emotions and sadness. I hope you all come back next year.
This last week of practice is for state qualifiers only. An email was sent to each of you with specific instructions for the week. Please email if you did not receive it.
CONGRATULATIONS ON METRO WINS!!
Congratulations on a great district meet! Boys won and girls got second and we had more state qualifiers. More details to come about the schedule for the state meet week.
See NMAA for general information.
Save the date! Tuesday March 5 will be the end-of-season Swim Team Banquet. More details to follow.
Swim team pictures will take place on Tuesday, January 15 at Highland High School Pool before practice. Please wear your team shirt and arrive no later than 3:30p.
Dive team pictures will take place on Tuesday, January 15 at Sandia Pool before practice. Please wear your team shirt and arrive no later than 5pm.
Winter training will take place Monday-Friday from 9am-11am at Highland. It's a regular practice, so attendance is required unless you're traveling for the holidays. The only two days we won't be having practice are December 25th and January 1st. We are practicing with Albuquerque High School at that time, so Jimmy and I will alternate days of who is running each practice. This means that the teams will get to experience different workout and coaching styles as well as interact and socialize with another team. It's a lot of fun, and because practices are two hours, each practice provides a rigorous workout. Winter training is designed to get you in excellent shape for the second half of our season, where all of our large championship meets take place, so I hope you understand why each practice is as mandatory as always.
