The 2017-18 swimming season is underway, which comes along with new freshmen taking on the depths and trials of the new team, and the seasoned players preparing for another year at competing.

The swim team, like any other North Atlanta team, is filled with a lot of talented individuals that work hard to better the reputation and success of the schools. “I think the whole team is really good. The girls are really strong this year, and we have some great new coaches. But really I’m optimistic for the girls in state,” said senior Jack Henderson.

Opinions say the swim team has a high reputation in the league with at least three swimmers placing at state every year. Team morale appears to be at a high with members like junior Hunter Smith. “With the swim programs at North Atlanta, I believe we only grow more and more each year,” she said. “Yes we lose strong swimmers, but we are always gaining some each year.”

The swim team have the most rigorous training schedule at the school with practices after school everyday of the week and two practices in the morning from 5:20am to 7:45am. “It’s tough, the practices are very exhausting and it’s a heavy workload, but it’s something you have to deal with if you want to continue and better your career in swimming,” said Henderson. For a team of 40 people, there’s players who all want to achieve something not only for the team, but for themselves too. “I just want to continue the good work the guys have been going on for the past few seasons,” he said.

“My personal goals for swim team this year is to lower my times in my events and help lower times for the team relays,” Smith said.

The exciting swim season is starting and the team of 40 players are preparing for the competitive meets against strong schools like Pace, Lovett and Centennial. Meets are said to be the place where the team connect, bond, and grow the most. The first swim meet is on November 4.
