Swim is a difficult sport working nearly every muscle in one’s body. It’s always a great workout for those who participate and stick with it.  Although CB’s team may not be the biggest, they intend on making a significant splash in the records this year.

Although swim is an individual sport, the team makes sure to support each other and encourage their teammates to do their best.

Faye Messner (’15), a third year varsity swimmer, told the Talon she thinks the team is definitely on the right track.  Last week many swimmers won events that took them out of their comfort zones in their meet against Rio Linda.

“I enjoy swim because of my teammates.” Faye explains, “I love that its non-cut and that kids from all skill levels can come together as a team.”

Faye, along with many of her other team members, wants to personally improve her technique. Besides focusing on personal goals, she always works to get to know the members of the team better than before. This way the team can learn to encourage each other to pursue their goals.

Antonia Eliopoulos (’15) is diving into her 11th year of swim. She strives to improve her times every time she has the chance and she hopes that the team this year will be able to win enough meets to make it to sections.

“I love the sport, especially after participating in it for so many years.” She explains, “We plan on working hard in practice every day and to go on to sections”

With strong contributions from Madeline Geary (’16) with a 200 free time of 2:10.78, Maliah Haroldson (’16) with an IM time of 2:34.25 and Matt Lemire (’15) with a 100 free of 52.25, in their recent meet against Del Campo, the team will work to defeat many teams this season.

Hopefully, all the swimmers will achieve both their individual and team goals for the season. Make sure to go out and watch our aqua-Brothers at home meets held at Sac City College.
