The varsity girls swim team is on the road to Sectionals.  The swimmers competed against their rival team, Crown Point, on Jan. 19.  

“The meet went pretty good. It’s not what we expected. We knew Crown Point was a good team.  They have really good standout swimmers, so we just wanted to do the best we could against them in a duel setting that’s not a big invite,”  Rachel Albright (10) said.

The girls worked hard but fell short to the Bulldogs with a score of 109-74.

“This was a huge meet for us, and we had some great swims.  We had a lot of first places, [but] we just came up a little short,”  Julianna Massa (10) said.

The team has two practices every weekday and one practice on Saturdays. The time the team spends bonding and practicing together contributes to their success.

“Our team’s strength would be that we really work together and we know that we aren’t always going to get the best times or we’re not always going to out-touch the person next to us. We cheer each other on and go out and have a good time.  Even though we know that Crown Point is a really good team, we can get close to them,” Mia Rinaldi (9) said.  

The team’s next meet is on Jan. 21 against Munster.
