Dixon High School Boys Swim Team was undefeated 5-0 when they went into the Golden Empire League Championship Meet swim tournament last Saturday in Woodland and wound up 6-0 Champions! Girls Swim finished 3rd. There were six different teams competing.
“The top swimmers like Sean Ward, Faith Dunn, Abby Kosiewicz and Angel Santa Cruz made a big impact,” said 1st year swimmer Gage Ruiz, who does a challenging 200-meter free style. Coach Michael Vlach earned his Master’s in Education from UC Davis and is a computer science teacher at DHS. He posted proudly on social media of the victory.
Congratulations to Abby Kosiewicz, a senior swimmer in the 100-meter freestyle/breaststroke. She was chosen as Student Athlete of the Week at Dixon High School.
“Abby has had an amazing senior season thus far and a great week in the pool. Last week Abby snagged to personal bests in her main events and qualified for sections with her time in the breaststroke. She has also placed first in numerous GEL contests and has helped the girls swim team compete down the stretch for a GEL title. Abby has played water polo and swam for all 4 years of high school. She was a key part of the section championship team last year. Abby is a 4.5 GPA student and plans on attending SB city college to swim,” posted by DHS Athletic Director Brett Peterson. Abby was surprised at the honor, thanked her swim coach, Michael Vlach. Abby is a 4.0 GPA student and plans on attending Santa Barbara City College to swim.
