Swim Team Starts Season Strong

The John Marshall Swim Team brought the heat at its first home meet of the season.

Swimmers scored first place in

  • Boys’ 200-Yard Medley Relay
  • Girls’ 200-Yard Freestyle
  • Boys’ 200-Yard Freestyle
  • Girls’ 50-Yard Freestyle
  • Girls’ 100-Yard Freestyle
  • Boys’ 500-Yard Freestyle
  • Girls’ 200-Yard Freestyle Relay
  • Boys’ 400-Yard Freestyle Relay

Their success is the product of many hours spent in preparation for these intense meets. Junior Billy Fox says, “This year our coaches are definitely taking our practices up a notch . . . .  They push us hard because they see potential and want to build the swimming program to be as strong as possible.”

The team looks forward to the future as they set their goals. Sophomore Alec Kuskey says his goals are “to take all of the relays to states and to make it to states in backstroke.”   The team practices hard every day after school and often workout before school as well. You can support our outstanding swimmers in their next home meet, December 17, at Four Seasons Pool in Moundsville.
