Derek Zhang, a senior on this year’s boys swim team, had a typically great meet Saturday, winning the 100M Backstroke and Butterfly races, and setting a new meet record in the Backstroke.
From this Times-Picayune article on the meet:
Zhang took home Male Swimmer of the Meet honors and set a new meet record in the 100-yard backstroke at the Greater New Orleans High School Swim League Metro Championships at Franco’s in Mandeville.
“I decided to come here and see what I could do,” said Zhang, who was also one-hundredths of a second off the meet record in the 100 butterfly. “It turns out that I did pretty good. I’m happy with the results. There are a lot of things that I need to work on, but I’m excited to prepare for state.”
