The girls swim team placed first of 10 teams at a invitational hosted by LHS on Saturday, April 7, with five teams placing first in their respective relays.

The invitational consisted solely of relay races, so freshman Grace McLeod believes the expectations on the swimmers differed from other meets.

“Because it was all relays, the pressure of a team depending on me was a good motivator,” McLeod said. “I feel like this was a really good meet for the team because we had at least one relay place in the top three in almost all of the events.”

The team’s success can be attributed to the group dynamics, according to junior Carly Tribble.

“The team this year is amazing and everyone seems to support each other really well,” Tribble said. “I think we all are really pumped for this season and that makes us want to try harder in our individual events and in relays or team goals.”

Freshman Grace McLeod hopes for the team “to continue to kick butt at all the meets so we have a really strong team when it comes time for state.”

Tribble agrees, and hopes the team’s success continues.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how we can grow and strengthen ourselves as a team this year,” Tribble said. “ I want to be positive in thinking that we can continue winning and [prove that] Mill Valley swim is a team to be reckoned with.”

The next meet will take place Tuesday, April 10 at BVHS.
