Girls’ swimming dove into their season with practices that began on Nov. 7. The team, consisting of 21 girls, works toward getting faster and stronger in the water after their first meet on Dec. 2 at Pattonville High School.

“I can already see their endurance levels have improved and I see them getting faster,” coach Karen Whitten said. “They’re very energetic and hardworking and are an overall great group of girls.”

They hope to get more competitive this year by making every practice count. The team finds itself striving to improve their technique and increase speed as well as growing closer as a team out of the water.

“We’re more competitive this year than previous years,” junior Erin Stock said. “We want to be there and win as many meets as we can.”

The team will compete in a total of 16 meets, including State, and hopes to have a few relays make it to State and beat their biggest rival for this season, FHHS.
