Winter Sports Recap and Awards
The Swim Team entered the year unsure about what they would be able to achieve. From the first practice, it was very clear that this year’s team had the full spectrum of abilities. Despite the varied skill levels, there was also clearly a strong sense of connection amongst the team. This tone was set first and foremost by Ryan Tse, the team’s MVP and captain. Ryan’s individual performances were noteworthy on their own but his contributions to team morale and spirit were even more impactful! After missing a good portion of the beginning of the season, Nyla Mucius was able to get back in the pool in January. Her impact was immediately felt and despite having just a couple practices, she was able to jump into her first meet and do extremely well. Nyla is this year’s MIP. The coaches award went to Aida Blue. Aida has been part of the swim team for years is a sparkling example of consistency. Everyday, Aida showed up to practice, gave it her all, encouraged her teammates, all with a great attitude. With many 9th graders leaving next year, the swim team looks ahead to new leaders emerging.
