The women’s swim team had an outstanding season this year. They went 5-5 overall, won the Edmonds School District Meet for the second year in a row, sent 14 girls to districts and placed in state.
Sally Benedict, a senior captain, on the topic of the teams season said, “I’m so proud of how far our team has come. I remember my freshman year we had 8 girls on the team, we never won a meet, and we didn’t even have our own coach, we shared with Edmonds Woodway.”
Since Benedict first joined swim, the team has come a long way.
“Now we have won the ESD meet for the second year in a row, we have around 20 girls on the team, half our team made it to state, and we have our own coach. It amazes me to see how far we’ve come. I’m so proud of every girl on this team, and I expect great things from them in the future. I’m really going to miss swimming with these girls.”
On top of having a great season, these girls have an amazing bond.
“Our team is very close. I don’t have exact words to describe the team, but we’re a family. We love to sing together, especially Christmas songs, on long bus rides. When we’re halfway through a set we always sing, “WOAH we’re halfway there, WOAH livin’ on a prayer.” We try to have as much fun as possible.”
