Swimming dives into victory

Arhama Ashfaq

The south boys’ swimming team had a very successful season, with progress among swimmers of all levels, Junior Varsity Swim Coach David Lieberman said.

The swimmers are continuing to improve as the season progresses while they prepare for a championship meet in a few weeks, Lieberman added.

“The guys are getting better and we are going to see some really great swims at the end of the year,” Lieberman said.

When competing against other schools, it is important for swimmers to uphold South’s reputation, Lieberman explained.

“[At a meet], not only are you representing yourself, but you are also representing the school,” Lieberman said.

The coaches note different things the swimmers need to work on as ways to improve throughout the season, freshman Charlie Lind, Junior Varsity Two Swimmer, said.

“My coach writes down observations in meets and practices and then she’ll talk to you after your race on [things] we need to improve on,” Lind said.

As for varsity, the team has an undefeated record in their conference so far, varsity swimmer senior Henry Chen, explained. Chen attributed their undefeated record to the team’s work ethic.

“[South] is and has been one of the top swim schools in the state, my freshman year we won state and this year we are looking for a top-five finish,” Chen said.

High school swimming puts a big emphasis on connecting with the team, varsity swimmer sophomore Lucas Fernandez-Geddes said. He admires the community that the program has built.

“The goal is to push yourself to your limit and make sure you are aiming towards a good goal,” Fernandez-Geddes said.

The program does a great job of balancing hard work and fun, Chen said.

“My favorite part is spending a lot of time with the team, we do a lot of team bonding activities,” Chen said. “I really don’t think there is anything I would change about the program.”
