When people hear the word swim team, all they think about is competing and practice, but not the PHU swimmers.

“I am on the swim team for fun. I’ve been swimming competitively since I was five, and being on the team is great because you meet many new friends,” sophmore Isabel Easley said.

Practice is also an important time for the swimmers. Five days a week for two hours, the PHU swim team has practice at the YMCA. The team consists of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and even seniors. You can’t be good at something if you don’t practice. Practice makes perfect.

“Sometimes practice hours affects my homework and study time but I always try to finish my homework either before or after practice,” Easley said. Although the students have homework and tests the next day, the students maintain a good time management skills.

The junior captains are Kelsey Thurin and Jake Burns. Senior captains are Tara Cabiling, Arriane Surita Rodriguez, Matt Hom, and Kyle Romero.

“I think of my team as a family,” sophomore Avery Kelly said. This is a big part for the swimmers, because it makes them feel welcomed and that they can depend on each other.

The PHU swim team has a winning streak after ten years. They always work their hardest and attend practice.
