The month of November is wrapping up which means swimming season is about to start for both the boys and girls swim teams. The swimmers hope to continue their success after a strong season last year. Senior Andrew Esola is on the boys team and says that this year means a little more than previous ones.

I am excited for this season. I have been doing this for the past three years since I came to Westside so it’s not my first rodeo. What makes this year different from all the others is that I am a senior now and I have a big responsibility to lead the kids on the team and hopefully take home the gold. It’s my last year here so I have to make it worth it or else what was the point of doing it?” Esola said.

The swimmers are not only prepared for what they may face this season but also seem willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their maximum potential. Junior Annika Wilmers from the girls team explains her team’s work ethic.

“We all know that we have to work the most we can, we know there’s no skipping practices. If we want to place really well at state its just as much physical work as mental work,” Wilmers said.

Both teams will have their first meet at home against Gretna on Thursday, November 29th at 4:30 PM. Come out to support your Warriors!
