The Va. AAA State Swimming & Diving Championship Meet kicks off on Friday, Feb. 17. Finals on Saturday. Who will take home the team title? What records could fall? Here are 5 storylines to follow at this year's championship meet.
RFTW's look at this weekend's Va. AAA Patriot District Championship Swim & Dive Meet, taking place January 26-28 at Lee District RECenter. Woodson is the run away favorite to repeat as boys' champions, but if the past is any indication of the outcome for the girls, the meet will not be over until the final relay is over.
Woodson, Yorktown, and Oakton are undefeated on both girls' and boys' sides in the Northern Region with one meet to go. Churchill, Wootton, Walter Johnson, and Whitman are battling it out in the MCPS' top division, and are looking ahead to their first Maryland states appearances.
West Springfield picked up its first loss of the season against a dominant Woodson team that is stacked from top to bottom. The Cavaliers should finish the season 7-0 next week against Lake Braddock before setting their sites on district, regional, and state titles.
