A favorite short video I watched before our thru-hike:

No More F-Bombs

Quote of the Day

For neither good nor evil can last forever;
and so it follows that as evil has lasted a
long time, good must now be close at hand.

Scott's Back for 2018 Call-Ups!

Scott Scofield will handle 2018 state meet call-ups again!  Make sure y'all let him know how much we appreciate the job he does for our athletes, coaches, and fans.

Email your complete region meet files to Scott here

He'll post call-ups on his site here

Little Retiring

Long-time Friendswood HS coach John Little is retiring.

Guess he'll have more time to ride The Liberator.

Little managed to build a state powerhouse with limited outdoor pool time.

The program finally moved indoors with the opening of the FISD Natatorium in 2010.


To apply for the FHS head coach/natatorium manager position, click here.  Deadline is March 23.

I'm always leery of someone who tells me how
hard they work.  Hard workers just work hard
and let their results speak for themselves.

2018 State Meet Call-Ups (Edited 1/25/18)

Great news!  See update on 2018 call-ups here

2013 & 2014 state meet call-ups were posted on this site.

Scott Scofield took over for us in '15, '16, & '17.

Neither of us can do it this time around.

Wouldn't it be nice if TISCA would go back to taking care of this?

Since it's likely they won't, does anyone out there want to give it a shot this year?

It's a tough job, requiring great communication, speed, and accuracy.

  • Complete meet result files from each region (in both classifications) must be gathered.
  • For swimming events, the top two (2) finishers in each event automatically advance.
  • The next eight (8) fastest times in each event advance as call-ups.
  • Prelim times are used to break any ties.
  • For diving, the top three (3) finishers automatically advance.

Let me know ASAP if you're able to take this project on for our athletes, coaches, and fans.
