The swim team’s season begins on Oct. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the annual Black and Gold Scrimmage at the Salvation Army.

“Swim meets are high intensity,” coach Casey Beck said, “They are easy to understand because it’s all about who gets to the wall first, so you don’t have to learn positions and rules to know what’s going on. Plus you are supporting BA sports.”

The swim team is divided equally into a black team and a gold team. There will be officials at the meet, but no one will be disqualified. After the meet, the officials will let the swimmers know what they need to work on.

“I am very excited to see myself improve and make more memories with my teammates this season,” senior Kayla Vaughn said.

The teams will be scored by a point system. The swimmer who comes in first will get 5 points, second will get 3 points, third will get 2 points and fourth will get 1 point.

“I am most excited to swim at this upcoming meet because it has been a while since we have swum at a meet,” sophomore Rachel Kramer said. “I’m ready to swim and have fun with my team.”

The team has been preparing for the season by doing morning weightlifting on Tuesdays and Thursdays, morning swim practices on Mondays and Wednesdays, and by starting doing 2-hour practices.

“The hardest part about preparing for this season is trying to come back from a knee injury, but I am really happy with how things are going and I’m excited to swim this season,” Rachel Kramer said.  

The swim season is from Oct.-Feb. and the state championship for the swim team will be Feb. 15-16 at Edmond.

“Our goal this season is to take 75% of our swimmers to state,” Beck said, “We are focusing on that, but I know some of the records will be coming down, which will be exciting.”
