Swim and dive head into their second meet of the school year against Heritage, Centennial, and Independence Tuesday. “I feel really great going into this season,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said.

The swim and dive team looks to make a splash as they take on Heritage, Centennial, and Independence Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Bruce Eubanks Natatorium in their second meet of the school year.

I feel really great going into this season,” head swim coach Zachariah Gnoza said. “New seasons bring new opportunities for growth. I wouldn’t say I am worried about [this meet] much, other than it is a smaller meet, and they typically run fast. I just hope everyone pays attention and gets to their race on time.”

The swim and dive team currently has 33 athletes, which will be a strength according to coach Gnoza. 

“One of the biggest strengths we have this year is our high team numbers,” he said. “High numbers allow us to fill all events and to spread out to score points as a team.”

Such large numbers bring lots of new faces, including 13 freshmen on the team this year.

“Our team leaders have done an excellent job preparing our new members and helping them have a positive mindset going into the meet,” Gnoza said. “We would love all the support we can get as we progress throughout the season. We have a young strong team that would love to see some familiar faces in the stands cheering them on.”
