Our boys and girls swimming team have been quite successful the past couple quarters at Santa Fe.

This school year the members of our swimming team have doubled. The team has managed to increase their standing in both the district and overall. The boys team is second in the district only behind North after beating Memorial.

This year the swim team has two seniors: captains, Lauren Gabbard, and Claudia Rangel.

“My hopes for regionals are that we compete well and that several of the swimmers qualify for state,” swim coach Sandy Love said.

The swimmers to watch in the upcoming meets are Ethan Hollingsworth (junior and junior captain), Joseph Shaffer (Freshman), Rachel Ly (Junior), and Kamryn Shaffer (Junior).

“All four of these swimmers are excellent swimmers and compete in both individual and relay events.” Said Love.
