The Benbrook girls soccer team hosted a youth soccer night this past Monday, prior to their match with Lake Worth. Players from local soccer teams came to workout during pregame with the varsity Bobcats. The girls were taught how to warmup, stretch and prepare for a match. Once the match began, the youth players stayed to cheer on their new role models. During the match, the Bobcats were able to defeat the Frogs 4-0 posting their 8th consecutive win as they prepare for district to begin this week.

The Arlington Heights Swim Team competed in the District Championships last week at Wilkerson-Greines Natatorium. Both Boy's and Girls' teams won in convincing fashion and dominated the field of five. Congratulations 1st year HC (Gober) and his swim team on a job well done! Arl. Heights boys & girls swim teams won the overall team championship. It is now on to regionals! AyyyHeights!
Boys were led by David Robacker, Ethan Garrett, and Kennedy Edwards.
Girls were led by Adelaide Nichols, Jacqueline Posina, and Maggie Newman.
This week our swim team faced some of the toughest competition we have faced all season. Districts were hard, but regionals were much tougher. We competed against all the Keller schools from our district, schools far out west such as El Paso, San Angelo, Odessa, Mansfield and Arlington were all represented at this swim meet. We had some goals and aspirations all year to make it to regionals and take as many people as we could to regionals. In prelims and finals, I think we passed that goal and accomplished more. 4 of our relays out of 5 made it back for finals the next night. Our girl’s 200 medley relay came so close to breaking the school record by .60 of a second with a time of 2:01:46. The 200 free relay for our girls made progress and improve their time as well from the prelims swim. Daphne Barrett, Madison Zamarripa, Ryan Louden, Joye Hatter, and Anna Werth were all key contributors to both relays.
Ryan Louden had some good races and made both regional finals and ended up finishing 7th out 24 swimmers in the 200 free and she competed in the consolation final in the 100 fly finishing in 7th place.
On the boy’s side Grant Chapa had some fierce hard competition in both of his races. It was a battle. The top 2 places in each event automatically go to state each year. In the 200 IM he placed 3rd with a time of 1:51:45 breaking his previous school record he set less than a month ago but missed qualifying for the state automatic bid by .24 of a second, by missing out on 2nd place. It looked like a disappointing outcome, but the day after it turned around for his good. He ended up making the list as a wild card qualifier to compete at state in that event. In the 100-yard backstroke he earned his first automatic bid by placing 2nd place with a brand-new school record time of 50.91.
Our boys' relays were solid in the 200 free relay, and we made progress and drop time in our 400 relay. Grant Chapa, Andrew Booth, Omar Baslaim, Kyle Reagan, Kelvin Nguyen, and Kendrick Hayes were all contributors on both relays that made the finals. Overall our season is not over, and we are excited and happy to see Grant Chapa move on and represent Paschal and Fort Worth in Austin at the 6A state championship meet next weekend February 18th-19th.

Paschal Boys and Girls wrestlers braved the winter weather and competed in the District 2-6A Tournament at Keller High School over the weekend. All 14 wrestlers worked hard all season and fought their tails off over the weekend. I'm pleased to announce that there are 5 wrestlers, 3 girls and 2 boys, who will go on to represent Paschal at the Region 1-6A Tournament in Haltom City at the end of this week.
On the girls' side, Junior 102 lb. Yaquelin Lorenzana took 4th Place, Sophomore 185 lb. Kristal Martinez took 3rd Place, and Junior 215 lb. Emily Roydes took 3rd place. This will be Yaquelin's and Kristal's first time competing at the regional level. Emily is now a 2-time regional qualifier for Paschal.
On the boys' side, Sophomore 138 lb. Luke Wilson took 3rd Place, and Senior 160 lb. Ben Dyer also came away with 3rd. This will be Luke's first time competing at the regional level. He joins Ben who is now a 4-time regional qualifier and 2-time state qualifier for Paschal.
All 5 of these individuals have worked hard for months to get to this point. Now they go on to try and cement their spots in the UIL State Tournament in Houston next weekend. The wrestling staff could not be prouder of these athletes and of all our wrestlers throughout this season. Please congratulate them and wish them good luck in the coming weeks!
