The swim team is moving to Division One which could be challenging for the team this season. By doing the required exercises, working hard in practice and pushing themselves, the team should be able to overcome these challenges.

Krissy Geren, the swim coach, said their goals are “lifetime best swims for all athletes, win two male relays and four individual events at OCC.” They want to qualify more [for] districts this season than last season.
