The boys’ swimming team aims to earn its first SPC title with the help of strong senior captains and promising underclassmen.

“A newcomer this year who has made a significant difference is freshman Cooper Lueck who has stepped up in his individual events and medley relay,” senior captain Austin Allday said. “We only had one senior last year, and he was a diver, so we did not lose much experience.”

Though swimming is an individual sport most of the time, the team members continue to push both themselves and their peers.

“I really think the competition within the team has driven all of us to improve throughout the season,” freshman Matthew Fastow said. “Meets usually are great for bonding, but, even more importantly, we have had several swim team dinners scattered throughout the season.”

 Boys’ and girls’ swimming and diving compete all day, Feb. 15, at the Conroe ISD Natatorium.
