Coach Sara Bany: One of the hardest things about coaching is ending a season, finishing with a team, graduating seniors. We have spent countless hours together in the weight room, at practice, at meets, on buses, dinners, and lunches. We have laughed and cried together. We have experienced fast swims and excitement as well as disappointment. This team supported each other through both. We had tremendous leadership and sportsmanship from our seniors and a great group of underclassmen. Whether we ended the season with a championship or small victories, I am so proud of all of them – they have worked so hard this season and the results show it. Here are some highlights:
