Halifax County High School swim coach Shawn Torian has considerable optimism regarding the current Comet swim team.

“We have 52 total swimmers on the team. We are looking good right now, the kids are working hard in the pool. The boys are looking to bounce back from last year’s loss in districts,” said Torian.

“The girls have high expectations to finish on top again. We have good leadership from our seniors Zoe Talley, Jackson Dunnavant, and Maci Henderson. The 2020 swim team has 13 returning female swimmers with Maddie Freshour, Lydia Wenzel, Lilian Zhang and nine male returning swimmers that will compete for points with Shea Carey, Ashton Burton, Ethan Kirkhart leading the way for high points total,” said Torian.

“We have some strong new swimmers that are showing a lot of potential. I am pleased where we are at right now and am excited to see what the future holds for this team. I think we can compete well in the district, however each team has gotten better from last year. G.W. was good and Bassett always has really talented swimmers. Our goal is to win the district again with both teams,” said Torian.
