On Thursday, December 7th, the boys swim and dive team started their season with a splash defeating River Ridge 127-56. Despite having lost a few seniors last year, the team is still going strong and has many promising freshmen. In just the first meet, there was 17 District qualifying times and two State qualifying times!

Sophomore David Theisen who has been on the team for two years commented that the meet went “really great and really fun.” Theisen has set some individual goals of sub 30 second 50s and sub 1:15 for the 100. As a team, he hopes that they will continue on the undefeated streak from last year.

Steve Froehle, a senior who serves alongside Noah Burlingame as team captain, said that “the meet went pretty well and the hard work the team has been putting in is showing.” As for the rest of the season, Froehle commented that “if the team keeps up the hard work, we’ll do good.” Senior Nick Malinowski who placed 2nd in state for diving last year and is serving as the dive captain this year shared Theisen’s view on the meet and foresees that the rest of the season will be “pretty great” as well.

Swim team coach, Kathy Casey, said, on the meet, that it “was excellent” and that she is excited about the amount of new members and level of new talent this year. Looking forward Casey foresees “win[ning] a lot of meets and do[ing] well in the postseason.”

There are two home meets next week, at Lakes on Tuesday the 19th and Clover Park on Thursday the 21st. Be sure to come out and cheer!
