The swim team competed at the district swim meet Jan. 20 at Nitro. Many swimmers had significant achievements at the meet, and among those, 14 athletes advanced to the regional meet.

How did the swim team prepare for district competition?
“The preparation started the day school started. We swim a significant amount of yardage every day to build strength and endurance. We also worked to improve technique.” -Summer Fullwood, 12

Why was the district meet a big deal for the team?
“It gave swimmers a chance to see where we ranked in district and to see if our times were fast enough to advance to regionals. At the district meet, the top six fastest swimmers in each event moved on to regionals, and depending on how they ranked at regionals, that’s when they moved on to state.” -Taylor Shorb, 10

What were the biggest accomplishments for the team at the district meet?
“One of our biggest accomplishments was that both the girls and boys finished 2nd overall. We also had many swimmers place first with new best times, and both the girls and boys relay ranked really well and advanced to regionals.” -Taylor Shorb, 10

What was the most difficult part about this meet?
“For me, it was difficult because I had the flu the entire week prior. For the team, it was difficult because we had only two days to practice before the meet. Not having those extra practice days hurt us a little bit, but overall, we were okay.” -Josh Brown, 12

How did your coaches motivate you to do well at this meet?
“They starting preparing us for this meet the first week of school. Both coaches were supportive and understanding and were happy for us when we did well. The support and encouragement we have received this year has been fantastic. Ms. Simpson took time to come to our meet and cheer us on. We are always proud to represent Rouse, but the pride grows when we know people care.” -Summer Fullwood, 12
