Team looks ahead to sections, State

After breaking all of the relay pool records on the board, the 7-1 girls’ swim team prepares for sections and State.
Senior Alex Pasquale said the reason for time drops is the relations between teammates.
“As a small team, we all know each others times and are supportive whenever there is a time drop.”
Many of the swimmers cite the squad’s cohesiveness as the reason for the team’s wins and new pool records.
After six years on varsity and winning the 100-yard breastroke race at State her sophomore and junior years, senior Kathryn Ostrom commends her teams’  support.
“I couldn’t have done it without my coaches and teammates by my side helping me,” she said. “My goal for State this year is to improve my (100-yard breaststroke)  time and get the State record.”
Head coach Jake Schwietering said there will be a large void as the seniors graduate after the season.
“It’s going to be very hard to lose the legacy these girls have created. These girls can be counted on to win races at any point in just about any event,” he said.
“Besides their talent in the pool, they are just genuine great kids, and have served as great role models for our team,” Schwietering said.
In her final year, senior captain Gillian McCuistion said she is proud of her team’s accomplishments this season and throughout the six years she swam for varsity.
“I feel blessed to have been a part of a team that has had so much success through camaraderie,” she said.
“We had a common goal and we all supported each other to get it done.”
