During the meet, the team gave their all. The team made great times in their swims across the team. Caitlin Murphy, Reilly Gilbert, Frank Alvarez, and Emily Dietrich lead the team for seventh place in Division 1 State Championships.

Reilly Gilbert, Jade Hallum, and Caitlin Murphy, stood on the podium for their individual placements.

Reilly Gilbert placed first in the 100 butterfly and second place in the 100 backstroke. 

Jade Hallum placed first in the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly.

The 400 Freestyle relay, which included Reilly Gilbert, Nathan Lewis, Anthony Nguyen, and Matthew Reysa. Together, they placed third and beat the school record by 9 seconds with a time of 3:25.30!

The swim team gave their all as one of the smallest teams in the competition. With a team of seven males and four females, that challenge was faced with courage head-on, and they swam their very best.

On January 22, 2020, the girls team placed second and the boys team placed third, giving the team an overall placement of third-place in Regionals.

"Each team member should be extremely proud of what they were able to accomplish," said Coach Daniel Parks.

Adult Faith Speaker Series

January 10, 2020
By Cristina Mares, Director of Communications

Save the Date

On Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 PM, all adults are invited to an evening of theology, prayer, and conversation for parents, faculty, and staff. Dr. Scott Hefelfinger is the Assistant Professor of Theology at the Augustine Institute in Denver, CO and will be presenting on, "Living Prayer in the Family." This is a great opportunity to get to know other parents in the lives of your students and grow in knowledge and practice of faith as well!

About the Speaker

Scott Hefelfinger serves on the faculty of the Augustine Institute Graduate School of Theology. He is a California native, and Scott studied music composition at U.C. Berkeley. While attending school there, a powerful rediscovery of the Catholic faith led him to serve for a year as a missionary with NET Ministries; this service was followed by further studies at the International Theological Institute in Austria and the University of Notre Dame, where he completed a PhD in Moral Theology. Drawing on his experience with art, traveling missionary work, and the richness of family life, Dr. Hefelfinger has taught internationally on a wide variety of topics, most of which center on Christ’s promise of “life in abundance” (Jn 10:10). He speaks regularly on morality, prayer, and family life at parishes and conferences. He and his wife, along with their three children, live in Centennial, CO, and love how the Rockies remind them of the Austrian Alps. 

If you have any questions about the event, please direct them to Mr. Ochoa, Director of Formation and Ministry, cochoa@saviochs.org
