Update: Girl’s Swimming

2021 is already trying its best to overtake 2020 for the Worst Year Award. But as with any hardships, there are several silver linings. For the girls’ swim team, this silver lining came in the form of an actual season. 

 

Normally, the girls’ swim team would begin practice the week before Thanksgiving break. Unfortunately, the past year has been anything but normal. As with most sports this school year, the girls’ swim season got pushed back nearly two months. Tryouts were finally held on January 18th through the 21st, signalling the start of another successful swim season. Tryouts aren’t a normal part of the swim team season, and this year tryouts will be cutting nearly half of the girls who normally participate. The cut off this year is 25 girls, a significantly smaller amount than in years past. 

 

This hasn’t hindered enthusiasm for the sport however, with swimmers old and new eagerly awaiting their chance to join the team. Rowan Osgood, a returning swimmer, hopes to “get faster and just improve” during the exciting new season. In accordance with the Boulder County guidelines, there won’t be any spectators allowed at the meets, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cheer from home.
