Zoe Peak signs with Henderson State



“I’ve never seen people swim like that,” Zoe said after watching the collegiate team. “They were very powerful.”

Ben said that he and Zoe were impressed with Henderson State head coach Coak Matthews, who is one of the university’s most decorated coaches and has been in his position for 29 years.

Without a high school swimming program, Zoe is very likely the first Commerce High School graduate to sign with a university’s swimming team.

“It’s a beautiful campus,” Zoe said, who will begin competing with the team when she starts college in the fall. “My goal is to compete in the national tournament.”

For now, however, Zoe will continue to train in Rockwall, three hours a day, six days a week.
