Valentina Perez, Isabella Ong, and Sarah Santiago
Pershing Middle School recently achieved accolades in the sport of swimming. The students took home three championship wins. Students on the swim team include (pictured, from left) Valentina Perez, Isabella Ong, and Sarah Santiago. The students practiced all season and were enthused to win the coveted title of Houston Independent School District’s District 1 Champions. The title was earned by various groups of students including seventh-grade girls, eighth-grade girls, and eighth-grade boys. Emily Mahan (not pictured), a seventh grader, broke two district records in the meet including seventh-grade girls’ 100-meter freestyle, with a time of 58.82 seconds and seventh-grade girls’ 50-meter breaststroke with a time of 36.27 seconds.
