The Fayette Area Swim Team (FAST) is currently in its 26th year.  The first season there were 57 swimmers from 7 to 18 years of age sign up and there were 12 teams in the West Houston Aquatic League.  The next year, there were 75 swimmers.  For the next 8 years, FAST averaged 100 swimmers each summer and they came from as far away as the Hallettsville area.  During that time, it became clear that there was a need for other towns in our area to start their own program.  Coach Gage thought this would allow FAST to compete with other teams in the area that did not swim in a year 'round program while also allowing FAST to compete with the Katy teams as well.  That year, after a lot of hard work, the league decided to divide all of the teams into divisions based on size and FAST was unable to compete with the teams right in its own backyard.

For the last few years, the team has ranged in size from 115 - 140 swimmers.  After more than 10 years in different divisions, FAST recently began competing with only the neighboring communities.
