The boys swim team has done what every sports team dream of doing; winning a state championship. They did so with hard work, strong underclassmen, and drive. Here is a recap of their successful season.

At one of their home dual meets on Jan. 14, the boys swim team defeated Waterloo West 113-57.

“[Swimming has] taught me a sense of community and it has helped me meet people that I couldn’t have without swimming,” said Robert Netolicky ’14.

“After reaching out to others as the captain, swimming with my teammates has helped me rekindle my passion for the sport,” said Carson Miller ’14.
