Swimming Preview

Swimming is a competitive sport that tests fitness, strength, and speed. With the new season coming up, the swimmers of San Mateo High are eagerly awaiting the upcoming season. Now that Ronald Chen, one of the best swimmers in the Peninsula, has graduated, we are expecting returning players to step up their game to keep San Mateo’s swim team strong.

The swim team, for the most part, consists of the fall season water polo team. It helps them as a team because they already know their strengths and weaknesses as swimmers. They also work well together and know each other’s abilities.

John Halet, Senior, says, “We are looking forward to doing well this season and we are confident but realistic.” As one of the strongest swimmers on the team, John hopes to lead the team to success again this year.

Dylan Babbs, senior and butterfly swimmer extraordinaire says, “I’m really excited for the new season. It’ll be really fun. We have lots of talent returning and I’m looking forward to winning PAL. I plan to take a leadership role in and out of the pool.”

The swim team pours their time and commitment into after school practices every day. On Fridays, however, they have morning practices, a great warm up for the day. During their practices, the do drills that practice their four strokes for two whole hours!

Last year, five guys made it all the way to CCS and we are hoping for a successful turnout again this year.
