For Frisco ISD swimmers and divers, the next five weeks are the time to shine. Starting with the District 9-5A meet on Thursday and Friday (Jan. 21-22), student athletes will try to extend an incredible run of swimming and diving success in Frisco ISD.
The District Meet, which will be held at Bruce Eubanks Natatorium, will feature diving on Thursday and swimming on Friday. COVID-19 mitigation guidelines will require strict limits to the number of spectators, but FISD Student Sports Broadcast will stream the meet live on the NFHS Network.

The top teams and individuals from the District 9-5A Met will qualify for the Region 3-5A Meet two weeks later at the Eubanks Natatorium. The goal for the swimmers and divers is to compete at the UIL State Meet, which this year will be in San Antonio.
This time of year is always exciting for Frisco ISD swimmers and divers, who have piled up numerous awards over the last 15 years. Frisco High has won five state team titles during that span (three boys and two girls), while Wakeland has won a boys title.
In just the last five years, FISD has piled up these accomplishments:
*1 team state champion (Frisco girls in 2016)
*3 team state runners-up
*14 individual state champions
*16 teams finishing in state top 10
*47 individual state medalists
It’s a tremendous achievement, and while Frisco and Wakeland have earned the most state accolades, the last five years have shown the depth of FISD’s swimming and diving talent. The 47 individual state medalists since 2016 represent eight of the District’s 10 high schools.
“The combination of talented and hard-working athletes, knowledgeable and dedicated coaches and spirit of working together is quite a force,” FISD Athletic Director David Kuykendall said. “We are proud of everything our swimmers and divers have achieved and look forward to what they will achieve next.”
