Boys / Girls Junior High Swim & Dive
What a GREAT 2017 – 2018 Winter Jr High Swim season we had!!
Our team was small with just 6 swimmers---but mighty with a lot of spirit and many skills developed throughout the practice and competition season.
Our roster for the year included Burgy Doan. Mycah Droege, Connor Espenshade, Matt Hansell, Ava Kraft, and Lindsey Steele.
Early in the season we started with benchmarks for each swimmer for each stroke during practice. As the season and practices continued, we saw time dropped by each team member and new skills in starts, turns, streamlines and competitive meet experience.
Practices consisted of numerous yards in our practice sets, drills to improve skills and technique…and a few rounds of sharks and minnows and water polo.
In our final meet of the season each of our competing swimmers posted personal best performances and technically legal swims across each of the four strokes—backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle.
We wish our 8th graders all the best as they look ahead to High School next year—each are ready to compete at the varsity level!! And….to our 7th graders---we look forward to seeing you back in the pool next December---bring your friends and look ahead to more great swims and competitions together.
Congrats to all! Continue to swim fast and win twice!
