Last Thursday evening, December 10, Paschal swimmer Grant Chapa broke two records.

The Paschal swim and diving team practices and competes at Wilkerson Greines Activity Center. That natatorium there has a wall of records, some of which are held by Olympic gold medallist Dana Volmer. Now Paschal freshman Grant Chapa has his name up there with the greats.
