Speed and camaraderie are what’s on the menu for the girls swimming team

After gliding through their first few competitions, girls swimming looks to continue their push deep into the latter parts of the season.

“Having such an amazing season last year, all we want to do is to beat those times previously set,” senior captain Mina Dizdarevic explained. “It’s exciting to have this streak going for us, especially this early on in the season.”

The strong start has consisted of a season opening victory against Loyola, a win at the Lake Forest Relays and a dominant dub against Niles North. The team will be the first to tell you, in no way was this due to chance. 

“I have never met such a strong group of girls in my life. Their determination and the love they have for the sport is a recipe for success, and I am so excited to see what the future holds for us,” Dizdarevic said.  

Clearly this recipe has all the right ingredients. For a program that has historically been known for their relationship in and out of the pool, this team is no exception.

“Although it is an individual sport, we do try to emphasize the team aspect of it. It’s really fun to see all the girls cheering each other on,” Dizdarevic explained. “It feels like a second family.” 

This family will look to carry their momentum into their meet today at Glenbrook South at 5:30 p.m.
