Swimming into the season

The Boys Swim and Dive team kicked off their season on Saturday, Dec. 2nd with time trials.

All the swimmers had to swim 50 meters of each stroke, then they got to choose three 100s and one 200, either freestyle or medley. Time trials run just like a real meet: there are 2 or 3 heats per event, and the swimmers get a few breaks in between events. The swimmers wanted to achieve their best times for when their first meet comes around. They also had to judge who will be participating on the relays and what stroke they will be doing. There are lots of new spots this year because most of the relay members from last season graduated.

“There is a lot of improvement to be done,” Jack Finazzo ’25 said. “We work as a team; we will get better day by day, and the team has a lot to grow.”

This year, the juniors will have to step up for the team. Finazzo and Owen Mulcahy ’25 said they are motivated to get some cuts this year and get better with the team.

“I hope to see some improvement,” Mulcahy said. “I expect that the team will get better as the season progresses, and we treat the team like a family.”

The team had some good times and are going into their first meet in a good place. After seeing their times, the swimmers have a place to work up from and try to drop time as the season goes on. The swimmers can drop time throughout the season and at their upcoming meets and hopefully get cuts later in the season.

“I think the time trials went well, there was a lot of good swimming from people after only two weeks of practice but we have a long way till March,” Captain Ben Bryan 24’ said. “I think a lot of people who are in good positions, can put up big times and are chasing state cuts.”
