The Dragon Varsity teams won both team championships, while the Dragon JV teams finished 8th in the girls’ competition and the boys finished 9th, against the other varsity teams entered.
The main event of the Dragon Hunt meet is the awarding of “rubber chickens” to each heat winner. Every swimmer, not just the very fastest ones, has a chance to win a rubber chicken. Overall, 102 rubber chickens were awarded in individual races to the heat winners. The Dragons came away with 20 of those individual rubber chickens.
In addition, four rubber chickens were awarded to the four members of each relay team that finished first in their respective relay event. The Dragon swimmers won seven of the eight relays, taking home 28 of those 32 chickens awarded.
The Dragons’ next competition is Thursday, Oct. 23 at the Allen Natatorium vs. Allen HS and the Jesuit and Ursuline.
