Swimming [for Central] gave me a lot of new friends, and definitely made me a better swimmer. Whenever I joined I was not very good and I would say I’m above average now””

On monday, the boy’s swim team participated in a time honored high school athletics tradition: senior night. The night consisted of awards, memories, and of course, swimming. Over half the team is made up of seniors, with 10 seniors and 8 underclassmen swimming this year.

This year, the team participated in a meet against Fort Zumwalt North and came out victorious. The seniors and their parents all came out on the bulkhead and were recognized, gave a brief address to the team, and shared their plans for college. The boys also followed a team tradition, one that Senior Andy Lippincott has watched happen for years, and finally participated in last Monday.

“There’s kinda a tradiotion where seniors wear khakis and crazy shirts for senior night” Lippincott said.
