Swim teams head
to district meet
The Bulldogs swim team is heading to the district meet Friday at Loos Natatorium. North Dallas Coach Erin Morrison says the meet will be very competitive and the team will be competing against swimmers who swim all year round.
"Our swimmers have worked so hard this year, and the results are showing," Morrison said in an email. "They are dropping time in every meet. I'm so excited to see how they perform at District!"
In a quick Q&A, Morrison talked about the upcoming meet:
What did team learn from the All-City meet on Jan. 10 that will help them this week?
"City is the first meet of the season in which the swimmers can get disqualified for illegal strokes, starts, and turns. Overall, our swimmers swam well technically as well as improving on times. We had a couple disqualifications that we've been working on fixing in practice. I'm hoping we have no technical disqualifications during district."
What are your expectations for district meet?
"I'm hoping for our boys and girls teams to advance to regionals. Our best chances are in the girls 200 medley relay, and the boys and girls 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relays.
Several swimmers had good individual performances at the all city meet. Which ones do you see finishing in top 6 and advancing to regionals?
"Our best chances for advancing in individual events are Helen Garcia (a freshman!) in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke, Aaron Mills in the 200 Freestyle and Leonardo Garcia in the 100 breaststroke."
The boys and girls 400-yard freestyle relay teams did really well at the All-City meet. How will they do this week?
"It's a tough race. Four swimmers each swim a 100 freestyle. I'm really excited to have enough strong swimmers this year to compete in it. I expect the both teams to improve in time. If we can place well again, we've got a good shot at advancing."
When is the regional meet?
Regionals will be Feb. 6-7 at the Lewisville ISD Aquatic Center

North Dallas varsity basketball coach Brett Cole sees a possible playoff run this season.
Can the Bulldogs make
North Dallas basketball coach Brett Cole is confident his Bulldogs have a chance to make the playoffs this season.
“If we beat the teams at our level, then we should make the fourth seed this season and make the playoffs,” said Cole, who is in his first year as the Bulldogs head coach. “It will be a battle of the last playoff spot.”
North Dallas began District 11-5A play with losses to Carrollton Creekview and Newman Smith, two teams, along with Woodrow Wilson, that Cole considers to be among the district’s top contenders.
Against Bryan Adams on Saturday, North Dallas trailed by eight (31-23) entering the fourth quarter but rallied to take the lead only to see the Cougars to tie the score in regulation play. In the overtime, the Bulldogs outscored BA 13-3.
“We were very efficient” with free throws and rebounds in the overtime, Cole said. “We were 5 for 7 [free throws] down the stretch. The ball bounced our way.”
Darius Watts led the Bulldogs with 12 points and Kobe Wrice added 10 points.
North Dallas plays Thomas Jefferson at Cobb Field House at 8 p.m. Friday in a District 11-5A game. The junior varsity plays at 6:30 p.m.
“We need to continue to get better each week,” Cole said. “If we’re not executing, it’s not going to go our way.”
Length, with 6-6 Watts, 6-4 Wrice and 6-6 Bryce Samuell, and guard rotation, with senior Chris Smith, senior Jayleen Donahue and sophomore Chris Jones, are the team strengths, Cole said.
“We have the talent,” Cole said. “Now we have to put in the work.”
