2017-2018 McNeil Swimming & Diving Team Roster!!!(updated 7/28/17 5:00 PM)

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 in our program and congratulations to the 2017-2018 McNeil Varsity Swimming & Diving Team!!!


A. Forbes, K. Freeman, E. Garcia, E. Gibbs, Z. Matula, T. McMillian, S. Nelson(manager), A. Seifert, D. Sim, A. Shamblin, E. Vaughn(manager)

A. Buchanan, D. Estes, K. Gavin, C. Le, B. Moran, H. Mosely

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 month and a half leading up to the start of school.  Failure to fulfill 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 August 1st 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 the start of school.

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