On Tuesday 2/16/21, the Hargrave Tigers hosted the VIC/BRC Swimming and Diving Championships and emerged victorious, securing their 12th VIC title and their first since 2015!
In a year that has been anything but normal, considering the Tigers started their season with an all-virtual meet, the energy was teeming throughout the ODAC on Tuesday afternoon as six schools made their way to Chatham to compete in the latest rendition of the VIC/BRC Swimming and Diving Championships. On the VIC side, Hargrave had swam against each conference school throughout the regular season and found success, but after a string of three straight 2nd place finishes in the championship meet, the Tigers were more determined than ever to seal the deal and take home the title.
Head Coach Amanda Weishaar earned the honors of VIC Coach of the Year for her outstanding effort in preparing these young men to become champions! Noted Weishaar, “From the beginning, I said to my swimmers ‘Give me 100% and come in last and I’ll be the happiest coach. Give me 80% and set a State record, I’ll be one very upset coach!’ Last night everyone gave 100% and left nothing on the table. I couldn’t have been more proud of them becoming a team and supporting one another. Last night was a testament to their commitment and faith in each other, themselves and the process!”
