Swim began its season in February, with practices taking place almost every day of the week. Each day, the team holds two-hour practices and on Mondays and Wednesdays, they additionally have an extended hour of weight training in the morning. Putting in this much time into the sport, the swim team has proved its determination and dedication despite setbacks in the new season.

With the pool under construction, the team is now forced to take buses from Burlingame to Aragon’s swimming pool in San Mateo.

“It’s just really small compared to BHS pool,” sophomore and varsity swimmer Yota Inouye said. “There’s more people in the singles lanes … so you can’t do a full stroke because you’re going to hit someone’s arm.”

On top of a smaller pool, the team has been unsuccessful in replacing the senior swimmers from last year, making the swim team noticeably smaller than previous seasons.

“I feel like the cut for varsity was easier this year … I noticed that not a lot of people are doing swimming this year,” Inouye said.

While the skill required to get into the varsity team may have fallen and the swimming pool situation is chaotic, the team remains confident and continues to compete to the best of its ability.
