Perry swim and dive season ended with girls swim team getting 12th, and the boys getting 15th in division one. On an individual scale, there were some who did extremely well.

Kalli Fama, Junior year girls team swimmer, swam the 200m, and 100m races. Receiving a second place with the 200m at 1:48.45, and earning a first place dub for 100m freestyle at 50.13. “I am swimming a race I never thought I would be able to make, and now i’m actually ranked first.” Fama enthusiastically stated, “I am super excited.”

The current season was noticeably different from past seasons, as pointed out by several swimmers. “Last couple years we could just go out and win, we actually had to work hard this year,” Fama stated.

“It’s been slower than last” Everett Malloy, current senior at Perry high stated. Yet as a senior and this being his last season, Malloy had a bit of a different goal; “Since this is my senior year I wanted it to be more fun than the best” Malloy explained, “It’s been a fun year”.

Perry boys Swim was put at 15th in division 1, and 35th place overall as of the November 2-3 swim championship. This being a team who, as well as losing many seniors last year, will continue of to lose a large number of seniors this year. With 9 seniors on the current team of 68 swimmers.

“For seniors there is a different kind of feeling knowing that this is your last time competing, all the painful years of training are literally left in the water.” Senior Sam Brenchley explains, “I am sincerely proud of what we were able to accomplish.”

With the mass exodus of seniors taking place, next year seems to appear like it will be like this current year, where 29 new freshmen came into the sport, making up for approximately half of the team, first years to swim.

“With all the new people we were not as strong as we were in the past, but rose up to the occasion and still showed they can be successful.” Head coach Stephanie Carrasco . Yet the Carrasco still remarked that she was “very impressed overall how we did.”

The past couple of years have had a lot of movement within the swim team, with folds of talented state qualifying swimmers leaving. The new and less experienced must take their place within the upcoming years.

The current freshmen that came in this last year, with even 4 of them qualifying for state, extremely promising to Carrasco. As the head coach talked on how there is a lot of potential, and a lot of talent hidden within the new, young, fresh generation of swimmers.

“If they continue their training like I hope they will, then they will be stronger than this year.” Carrasco stated assuredly.
