Winter sports have now officially started their seasons, including swimming.  The Boys and Girls teams conditioned together for months in preparation of the season’s start.

Returning with almost the same members, the Girls look forward to being a dominating force among the conference this season. 

“I think the season should go really well for the girls especially.  We’ve been working really hard, even when the sets get tough.  Also, this year everyone’s been getting along really great so with that, and the fact that we’re working hard, practices and meets should be an over-all good atmosphere,” Brianna Shoemaker (10) said.

The Boys, on the other hand, are trying to make up for the loss of five top-scoring seniors.  

“I feel like a lack of depth inhibits our ability to excel this season,” Andrew Reeseman (11) said.

For some, swimming this year just is not an option.  Luke Paprocki (11) sprained his ACL, Achilles tendon, at the beginning of the season.
“I am upset that I can’t help my team out, but I think we will do fairly well since we have freshman to make up for the loss of seniors from last year,” Paprocki said.

The Girls team has its first home meet November 22 against Portage at 6 p.m.  The following Tuesday, November 29, both teams will be competing against Valparaiso.
