The swim team has officially started! They had their first meet last weekend. All the new members are getting a feel for how the competitions are run, and the new members are getting back into the groove of things. The first meets are always great for forming starting points. As the season progresses and the athletes improve, and learn, they can look back on the first meet of the season and see how far they have come and how well they have improved. The team this season is really large, and, as Mrs. Atwell put it, “very strong.”
The team this year is very large and also has a lot of talent, therefore they are hoping some of the members will rank high enough and be eligible to attend State. When asking Mrs. Atwell what her hopes for this season are, she said, “I am very anxious to take as many members of the team as possible!” To continue on their season, their next meet is November 16th against Calhoun and River Ridge. This is just the beginning of a really great season for our swim team! Saulye Nichols, and Hannah Smith are girls to keep your eye on this season; they are really great people, and they are really great swimmers! Be sure to attend their meet on the 16th against Calhoun and River Ridge to keep up with their season this year!
