Swimming 2014

It’s a new swimming season, and SMHS is now busy recruiting. The result are extraordinary so far: several boys begin their first season this Monday, and girl’s team size has even doubled. Most of the new swimmers are freshmen, which reveals that our baby bearcats have started to participate in school activity.

In fact, a couple of the recruits have been swimming for years, and hopefully joining will lead to a wonderful season. “ Last year, our elite swimmers graduated and I used to think that this coming year would not be that good as I expected. Now I am glad to see a lot of young bearcats joining the team,” said Ms. Parodi, the water polo coach and currently one of P.E teachers at SMHS.

The season officially kicks off on February third. “Although our teammates have a decent foundation of swimming, there are still lots of preparations that need to be done. It will never be easy, but I believe our team will be in shape before the actual swim meets,” said the boys’ swimming, coach Rich.

“We had a great season last year and our girls team won the championship in PAL,” said coach Rich. He uses the whistle to get swimmer’s attention if there is necessity. Coach Rich loves staying here at San Mateo as long as he can be the coach of swim team here.

“Swimming is hard but you will enjoy the game afterward. If you are not a person that commits to something and gives up then it is not a good option for you. I like it because I enjoy meeting and talking to my friends. I think this year the JV will do much better,” said Ryan Hong, a Sophomore.

Swimming is a sport that takes time and commitment. SMHS Swim team is determined to do better and try to win all their meets. They practice Monday through Friday after
school.
