The area was well represented at the regional swim meet with El Campo, Wharton and East Bernard taking part in 15 different events. No one in the area will be moving on to the state swim meet but a few swimmers came tenths of a second away from advancing. 

El Campo had the most swimmers of the three area schools at regionals and they finished in ninth place out of 24 teams.

East Bernard's only swimmer, junior Valerie Grigar came about five-tenths of a second combined in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle from moving on to state. 

The girls 200-yard freestyle relay was Wharton's highest finish grabbing 11th place. Overall, Wharton had 16 points and finished in 19th of 24 teams.
