The meet really pushed the team to their limits, especially against the high-level Dallastown team.

Junior Yulia Houseal loves contributing to great team spirit that is represented during the races.

“There is a really great atmosphere… Everyone always cheers for each other as they’re finishing their races,” said Houseal. “[They’re] a very supportive team.”

After the meet, the team was even commended by the Dallastown coach for their great team spirit and dedication.

Junior swimmer Allison Reed feels this spirit is key.


“Everyone cheers so loud… it [helps] us all to swim well,” said Reed. “No matter who is racing we always cheer very loudly for the last person swimming, regardless of what team they’re on. It gets pretty loud.”


This meet was a little different since coach Brian Wingert assigned team members to events they don’t usually swim.

Sophomore Erin Kaliszak thought the team did very well regardless of the change.

very well.”

The swim team did not win their first home meet, but their next meet is on January 14.
