Swimming: Hebron's Korst adds more gold to resume
While Flower Mound's swimming and diving program emerged as the elite from District 5-5A, with the Jaguars (189 points) and Lady Jaguars (201.5) sweeping their respective titles Friday in The Colony, Hebron's squad still managed to find success and advance multiple swimmers to this weekend's Region II Meet at the Keller Natatorium.
The Hawks finished second (93) as a team on the boys side, while the Lady Hawks placed fourth (58.50). Marcus (106) and Coppell (100) followed in second and third in girls with the Cowboys (77) earning third behind Hebron.
