Summer Swimming

Swim season is never over. Many St. X swimmers train with Lakeside, Cardinal Aquatics, Triton and other teams year round.

KSHAA’s swim season may have ended in Feburary with the state meet, but a lot of St. X swimmers haven’t stopped training since. They compete for local club teams. Most of the meets this summer will be in 50 meter pools, the same length as Olympic pools, instead of KHSAA 25 yard pools.

The swimming and diving coaching staff will get somewhat of a break this summer during the dead period, when they can't have any communication with their swimmers.

  • Kentucky State Championships, July 24-27

Zach Carrico, Matt McDermott and Matt Steiden, who train at St. X in-season, have moved to Lakeside for the off season. “Right now, we are working as hard as we were during the season,” said Carrico.

Summer training is often the difference between a good season and a great season.  Keep your eye on these swimmers in November, and expect big drops.

After coming off of a back injury, Heyward Harrison (right) dominated at the state meet, placing at least top three in all four of his events (with a win in the 200 IM). A summer of two-a-days should keep him on the right track to continuing his improvement.

Visit our website again after OVC’s (June 12-14) to see how Heyward and the rest of the Tiger swimming crew perform.
