Although only two years old, North Hills Prep’s middle school swim team was in rare form on Feb. 2 as their girls’ team finished an undefeated season by beating tournament favorite, the Oakridge School, to take the gold in the Metroplex Middle School Championship held at the LISD Aquatic Center in the Colony, TX. North Hill’s boys’ team finished strong as well, placing second behind St. Mark’s in the boys' bracket. Between both teams, North Hills made a mild sweep of the medals wining seven gold, four silver and five bronze.
Besides taking home a cluster of laurels for the school’s trophy case, the team also set a number of meet records. The girls’ ‘Dream Team’ represented in the medley relay with a time of 1:04:10. Jackson Sterling also made meet history for his 30:01 time in the 50 m backstroke, and Omar Hmamy finished the 50 m boys’ butterfly in an impressive 28:17.
