From left to right, seniors Randy Tam, Larissa Tam, Jon Li, Natalie Ken, Nayelli Ah Tou and Marianne Tessier are ready to swim.

It’s a new swimming season, and the team has been conditioning since the winter season in preparation for it. The team consists of 17 boys and 31 girls and many of the new swimmers are eager freshmen with high expectations. Some have been swimming for years while other aren’t as experienced, however they are all welcome on the team.

“This year both the girls and guys teams are looking really good. We have a lot more guys this year which will really help us score more points. Additionally, the girls are looking as good if not better than last year. Our team increased a lot in size this year and I’m excited to see how we do. We already won a scrimmage meet against DTech last Thursday and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the team,” said senior and captain Jon Li.

The swimmers have intense practices Monday through Thursday and early morning practices on Friday. The JV and varsity teams practice separately, both sessions averaging about two hours. With all the effort they’ve been putting into practice, the team hopes to see the results in their game.

Last year, the girls varsity swim team was second in their division, practically undefeated, with a single loss to Menlo Atherton High School 72-97. This year, the swimmers hope to do even better and make their way to CCS.

Captain Natalie Ken, senior said, “I think our goals for the season are just to, especially for the varsity girls team, improve from last season. I think improvement is very important. Also, I think qualifying our teams to CCS (Central Coast Section) and getting as many swimmers to swim in the pool in CCS and PALs (Peninsula Athletic League) as possible and just having fun!”

Come out to support our bearcats at their next away game against Burlingame High School on March 23 at 3:30 p.m.
