WF Swim's Barton Signs Scholarship

Wichita Falls High School swimmer Kolton Barton signed Monday to swim collegiately for NCAA Division-II Davis and Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia.

Barton was part of an Old High 200-meter freestyle relay team that broke a school record back in December, and on Monday he called that one of his proudest achievements.

He also reflected on how far he's come in four years.

"Starting out as a freshman, not having any experience, it's pretty rewarding to see that I have made it to this next level and that I'm gonna swim for it," he said.

The Wichita Falls swim team features teams from all three WFISD high schools and is coached by Oyvind Zahl.
