Swim dives into State before season ends

This Saturday, the Varsity boys Swim team will have their competition at State, and whatever the outcome, Head Coach Steve Kelley still considers this a productive and successful season.

“We have had more people qualified for State and most of the swimmers have hit their personal best times,” Kelly said. “The new people are getting faster times and more experience.”

For the fist time in history at North Nate Weiss, Austin Doeren, Patrick Fountain, and Nick Ganousis qualified for State. Another highlight of the year includes Weiss and Fountain qualifying for State in September at the Francis Howell Tri-Meet.

“It was one of the most competitive meets I have ever seen,” Assistant Coach Chip Crow said. “But it was a lot of fun.”

Even though the end of the season is still not here, team members have began to look forward the season next year.

“The most exciting thing is that I will be a senior and lead the team,” junior Jared Hurr said.

The team sees next year as a rebuilding year. After this season, the team will be losing four seniors, including Weiss, who has been a pivotal team member since qualifying for State in the beginning of the season. In spite of this, the team still walks away from this season satisfied.

“Next year is going to be a rebuilding year,” Kelly said. “But I would say it has been a good season overall.”
