GRANBURY SWIMMERS SHINE AT STATE MEET

February 18, 2020 

State Swim Meet

Nine Granbury High School swimmers competed at the Class 5A state swim meet on February 14-15, 2020, at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. 

Competing were Trinity Belott, Kori Brawner, Jaden Couto, Daniel D’Souza, Brock Holmgreen, Ashley Loveless, Mary Power, Matthew Walters, and Cutter Willmeth. 

“We are moving in the right direction in terms of our program becoming one that is recognized as being competitive in the state and not just competing at state,” commented GHS head coach Jason Pullano, who is assisted by Deneen Carter. “I’m very proud of these nine! This year, we returned less than half of last year’s state team. And through grit and determination, these swimmers turned a potential ‘rebuild’ into the statistically strongest team I’ve had the pleasure of coaching!”

  • Boys 200 Freestyle Relay:  Matthew Walters, Cutter Willmeth, Daniel D’Souza, Brock Holmgreen, fourteenth
