Swimming the butterfly, senior Carter Lawson takes a breath at the boys swim meet on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Boys swim kicked off its season at an all-relay meet at Lansing High School on Saturday, Dec. 2. They competed against nine other schools and placed fourth overall.

Due to the all-relay meet solely consisting of team races, second-year swimmer sophomore Avery Lawson believes this was a great first meet in terms of having all the swimmers work together.

“It really helps with team bonding, and we get to know each other and each other’s style of swimming,” Lawson said. “It helps all aspects.”

According to sophomore Colby Beggs, also a second year swimmer, this meet provided a laid-back environment while still giving first-year swimmers a competitive atmosphere.

“I like the all-relay meet because there are some fun relays like the 100 medley relay,” Beggs said. “They aren’t in other meets, so I feel like it gave everyone a fun break.”

As far as strengthening the team, Lawson looks forward to seeing the new swimmers in upcoming meets.

“I think we did really well, and we have a lot of freshmen this year that are going to perform well,” Lawson said.

In addition, Beggs believes that the meet showcased the effort the team will put forth for the rest of the season, even if it may not have put the team at the top.

“Overall, I feel like we did pretty good this meet,” Beggs said. “Even if it was our first meet, we all did our best in quite a while.”
