Red Lion swimmers splash into the water at the peak of sunrise, as they prepare for an early workout beginning at 5:30 am Mondays and Wednesdays. The swim team is the only team to arrive to school early for pre-school practices.
When asked about her feelings towards the morning practices Sophomore Emma Rinehart said. “They are tough but I know we need something to push us to the next level.”
This year’s swimming team returns a group which contributed to a 4-3 season for the girls, and a 3-4 season for the boys. This year will mark new leadership for both squads as the teams are now under the direction of new head coach Chris Doemland and Assistant Coach Kirsten Petrella.
This team returns most of their starters from last season, including Chance King, Dylan North, Callum Brandt, and Eli Aggen. These of which make up the 4x4 medley relay team that last year broke the school record on their way to districts last year.
The girls team returns very experienced names including Morgan Grove, Courtney Schaefer, and Emma Rinehart. A highly anticipated freshman by the name of Jessica Sun will be joining the ranks for the girls as well.
The season kicked off Dec. 12, 2013 with a home meet against New Oxford.
