Swimming to a stop

Senior night, a bittersweet yet exciting moment, is celebrated to recognize the hard work, dedication and contributions of senior athletes to South’s sports community. On Tuesday, Feb. 13, the Varsity Swim and Dive team celebrated their nine senior swimmers as their final season began to draw to a close .

The boys’ ceremony took place half-way through their final dual meet against Dakota High School. Jack Finazzo ’25 has been on the team for the previous three years and while the ceremony was bittersweet, he is ecstatic for his teammates’ futures.

“I don’t know how to explain it, but as they were walking down, I saw them growing and becoming better people,” Finazzo said. “I can see them all making a great future for themselves, and I really hope they do.”

The ceremony included walking down an aisle lined by their teammates, receiving a senior rose from an underclassman, sharing some of their favorite memories from their swim career, taking photos with their loved ones and standing tall on the diving blocks. Team captain Ben Bryan ’24 was the last to walk down the walkway.

“There were a lot of mixed emotions as I was walking,” Bryan said. “It’s awesome, but it’s also incredibly sad. We only have three more meets including our states.”

This season has not only been incredibly eventful for the seniors, but for the team as a whole. As the season comes to an end, the team is currently planning on taking over ten boys to Division II states at Eastern Michigan University in early March.

“All the seniors are truly great, but I will probably miss Troy Liu the most,” Finazzo said. “He is a great leader and has taught me so many things.”
