History For Girls Swim!

State consideration made by the Girls Swim team!
History+For+Girls+Swim%21

Capital City’s Girls Swim Team hit a huge milestone recently! This year is the first year of having girls swim at our school, and the relay made state consideration! This is a very big accomplishment. The relay was a 200 freestyle relay swimmers in order of Alice Iminger (sophomore), Myla Wilson [me] (Junior), Braelynn Hoskins (Junior), and Kari Kemna (Junior). We can’t forget our huge cheerleader and amazing teammate Elle Newman who wasn’t on our relay team but did her best in her events like the rest of our team.

After constantly working so hard with 6-day practice weeks and many meets and getting lots of personal records. We met a goal that started as a dream or a small thought. With the help of an amazing coaching staff who only believed in and supported us the whole way through, they allowed our team to do great amazing things in and out of the water. They truly made our goals come to life during every meet and they pushed us to go harder as well as at practice to build us up for the meets.

We also appreciate the tolerance they had for us being the fact that they are balancing teaching, coaching, and just being amazing people for us and their families as well. They truly guided us through different aspects of not only our swimming journeys but also our lives. Another fun fact about our team was that it wasn’t only made of CC girl swimmers we had practices and traveled to meets with JC girls as well. Which at first you would think would be a challenge but the girls were so kind and sweet to us as we were to them and we made long-term friends with them. This was an experience we could all for sure appreciate considering we only had one senior who we will miss dearly, we’ll all still have the opportunity to do it all again for another season if not two. 

If you think about joining the girl’s swim team, it is a great opportunity to learn different life skills and swimming techniques and get introduced to people who will support you forever. Don’t be shy or nervous, come in and be yourself, and try your best, that’s all we ask for. Your determination and discipline will show by you showing up the other stuff will follow. Also, you don’t have to be a professional swimmer or think that you have to swim long-term. So come in, test the waters, and help us grow our program! We’d all love to have you.
