Eighth grader Gigi J. had a record-breaking year and was a part of all four girls new school records. Gigi broke the girls record for 50 and 100 free and teamed up with three others to break two relay records.

Gigi said her favorite memory was being with her friends and breaking two individual records for the school. She said that she can’t wait to get back in the water next year and hopefully make more memories.

Eighth grader Miles C. also had a record-breaking year earning a new individual school record and was a part of the record setting boys 200 medley, 200 free, and 400 free relays.

Miles broke the boys 50 free mark. He said his favorite memory this season was breaking the 50 free.
He also said that he would love to continue swimming next year because he loves being in the water and with his friends.

Seventh grader Janine H. was a contributor on the girls 200 free and 400 free relays. “My favorite memory this year was getting a record. Even though it was a relay record, I’m still really proud of it because this is my first year, and I have already made an impact,” she said.

Coach Jan Allen said, “It was one of the best seasons we have had. To have eight records broken, four from the boys and four from the girls, is pretty amazing.”

She believes Gigi and Miles have a future of swimming for big schools. “Definitely, if that is something they want to do. Also they will be a big impact on the varsity team, along with the rest of the eighth-grade team.”
