Middle School Swimmers Stay Perfect as Regular Season Concludes

Tobias Raether

The middle school swim teams brought their regular season to a close with a perfect record yesterday, after their win over Colfax. The boys won by a mere 19 points, with a final score of 87-68, despite team captain Andrew Morgan sitting out due to injury. The girls won by an astounding score of 116-22. Once again, the events were fun to watch because of how competitive the swimmers were, and how close the finishes were.

Colfax remains one of the Obama swim team’s primary championship competitors as another remarkable season comes to an end. Both teams are filled with excellent swimmers, that will give it all they’ve got next wednesday. “I think we could win” said Eamon Sheehan, a 7th grade member of the Obama swim team, when asked about the team’s chances of winning championships. Many of the swimmers seemed to have the same opinion when asked about how the season had gone, and what they still hope to accomplish. They know they are a part of a team filled with good swimmers, but they also understand there is lots of room for improvement. Unfortunately, they don’t have much more time to improve. Coach Picciafoca stated “As usual, I wish we had more time, a couple more weeks and our times could be much better, but as of now, we are as prepared as we can be.”
