The girls’ swim team shows a lot of potential. With hard work and determination, they have not only created a strong team, but strong individuals.

I think that while we are obviously training to be stronger swimmers, it also teaches us to be stronger people.”

— Isabella Lord

 “It shows you that you can push yourself to a limit and still break that limit.”
With rigorous practices and hard work, the girls appear to be ready to take on the season.
“The girls are doing really well and are working very hard,” head coach Julie Verwijst said. “I think that the team will do well.”

“I can definitely see some promising athletes on this team,” Verwijst said. “It’s still too early in the season to point out the stars.”

Lord, a senior in her fourth year of swimming, has high hopes for the end of the season.

“I hope that by the end of the season, I can break my records and improve myself as a swimmer,” Lord said.

Kennedy Courtney, a sophomore in her second year of swim team, hopes to improve her times in all her events, as well as qualify for state.

“I’m really hoping that my hard work throughout the season will make me a strong enough swimmer to compete well in state,” Courtney said.

The first league meet is April 1, at Lodi at 3:30 p.m.
