McNeil Swimming & Diving Roster 2015-2016

Mighty Maverick Nation!!!  It was an honor to have so many fantastic individuals with such impressive talent show up interested in representing McNeil High School in this year's UIL competitive season.

Please understand that the selection process is extremely difficult and is one that is not taken lightly.  Everyone who showed up has obviously spent many years working on their craft of swimming.  If you happened to not have made the roster this year, I recommend you continue to swim with a local year round program and tryout again next year.  Thank you to everyone for their interest and congratulations to the 2015-2016 McNeil Varsity Swimming & Diving Team!!!


A. Gavin, C. Gibbs, G. Hailes, J. Harris, K. Jotwani, J. Oh, D. Quinn, J. Trunick, M. Wadehra, H. Weeks(manager)

Also, please understand that if you have made the above roster that you are agreeing to a commitment of staying in shape and working hard for the next two months leading up to the start of school.  Failure to abide by this commitment could result in you forfeiting your position on the team.

All of the above athletes should be receiving an email about up-coming team business.  If you do not receive an email by the end of the week you should contact Coach Foss at .  Our first practice will not be until after the first day of school, but we have a LOT of business to take care of before even school starts.

Thanks again, and congratulations to this year's Swimming & Diving Team!  See you soon.

The Rhythm of Everlasting Glory

High times, low times, we have so much time,
To get to the end, it will be long, we will be just fine.
Head down, breathe in, don't look around,
Keep up the pace, keep up the rhythm, pick up the sound.
Arms flailing, feet beating, breath exhaled, all rhythmically.

Morning comes, hardships persist, morning ends,
Every day this happens all over again.
New day, new challenge, new weaknesses found,
Every day you want to complain, but don't make a sound.
Will comes easy, will comes hard, will comes at dawn.

The course is a battlefield, waters all around,
Blood comes in different forms: sweat and tears trickle down .
Cheers like gunfire, whistles are the battle call,
Rain, rain, pours down, upon the field of brawl.
Get down, stay down, see the tears ebb.

Counting medals, counting stars, counting what falls,
Down the ranks, up with glory, the barracks call.
Win some, lose some, never fail by Diem,
Get back up off the floor and stick with the team.
One event can change your life, change it for yourself.
