Diving into Fall Sports
September 6, 2019
The Boys’ Swimming and Diving team is excited for the season. Anna Braswell, the coach of the Boys’ Swimming team for the past 13 years, wanted to become a coach because “swimming has always been my passion and I wanted to help others to be successful in their swimming journeys.”
The team prepares for competitions by doing distance and sprint workouts and focusing on turns and starts. Ms. Braswell states, “My most successful team was in 2016. We had a large, hard-working team that was full of talent and depth. They supported and pushed each other.”
The team started off strong, with two swimmers earning qualifying times for state within the first few weeks. Philip Tso and Chaska Cox-Potter distinguished themselves in the 100m fly and the 100m breaststroke. The coach is hopeful that this is only the beginning of their successes.
Returning to the team this year include state qualifiers Chaska Cox Potter, Kyle Hubbs, Wyatt Martin, Nathan Moser, Chris Tobar, and Philip Tso.
