With the fall season quickly approaching, senior Caroline Strolic and the rest of the NDP Swim Team have been training for weeks already, putting in work at a breakneck pace. With practices both before and after school throughout the week, they expect to be ready by their first meet.

However, the team will not enter the season the same as it finished the last one. A new coach has been hired, marking a change in the team’s strategy.

According to senior Zain Majeed, the team will specifically focus on long distance swimming as opposed to the shorter, faster races. On top of that, the team has lost valuable seniors such as Braxton Bilbrey and Griffin Brenseke.

This change in dynamics, though, will not slow the team down. The girls won first place at state last year and are expecting to make another strong showing. The boys, on the other hand, took a close second place and are eager to do better this year.

Did the loss make him more determined to win it all this year?  “Definitely,” said senior Charlie Corona.

The boys team unquestionably has its goals set for the season. Majeed said, “Although the team has changed a lot over the last year, I know we’ll be able to give state a good run.”

Corona added, “I know we can compete with a few other schools in State for first place.”

The season kicks off on Sept. 8 against Greenway and Coronado.
