The Highland Park Blue Wave swimming and diving team swept away the competition at last weekend’s Class 4A Region IV Championships in Mansfield.

The girls, who are shooting for their 11th Class 4A state championship in the last 12 years, obliterated the competition, beating second-place Rockwall, 635-255, for their 13th straight regional championship. The boys beat their closest competitor, Cleburne, 325-269, to give Highland Park its first regional sweep since 2006.

Several swimmers and relay teams got automatic berths to state by winning individual events. The remainder of the state qualifiers are still being determined. The state meet is Feb. 24-25 in Austin.
