Going out with a bang. Thats a phrase used to describe the way the lady Muskies swim teams season ended.

Friday, Feb. 17 was the last day of the season for some swimmers who made it to the regional swim meet. Seniors Julie Lewis, Julie Morgan and Erin Shade, junior Alyssa Bauserman and sophomore Kaelyn Moore were among those who made it to the meet last Friday to compete against some of the top schools in the state.

The swim team had a successful season with many of the girls breaking some school records. But breaking records wasnt all that was on the girls minds, they were also just out for the experience and memories that go along with it. My favorite memory is all the great memories with Julie and Erin, said senior Julie Morgan. From jumping around, to singing and our crazy dance moves, to everyday at practice being a new adventure with Julie and Erin, we do the dumbest things, but they are awesome and I love them.

The girls swim team has made a lasting impact on JGHS because of how many records they have set. Julie Lewis set a new school record in the 100 Back with a time of 1:05.90, said swim coach Dave Morgan. Lewis beat her old record by 1.44 seconds.

The girls set four new school records at the SEOSL Championships meet. Other teams cant touch this, said senior Julie Lewis. After the way this season went, many might agree.

Being their last year and all, the seniors have a lot of mixed feelings. I get upset sometimes when I think about it being over. Im really going to miss spending time with the Julies! said Shade. We have so much fun, from 7:30 warm up to going out to eat after meets and almost getting kicked out because we are obnoxious!

The swim team has left its mark on JGHS and the symbol of their effort and hard work will be shown on the record boards. As Shade would put it, John Glenn Swim Team goes hard.
