The district swim meet was held at the James M. Sprinkle pool on Friday Oct. 27.  Brantley hosts this annual swim meet for the seven attending teams. Overall, both the girls and boys teams for Lake Brantley placed in third at the meet. Swimmers whose race times ranked in the top eight of the competitors continued to the regionals swim meet that was held on Nov. 2, at the University of Florida in Gainesville. The districts swim meet began at 4:30 p.m. and ended around 7 p.m. that day, with tickets costing five dollars. Brantley’s swim season began the first week of school with tryouts. The swimmers were then split into a junior varsity team, coached by Jill Jucker, and a varsity team, coached by Clay Parnell. At the beginning of the season, swimmers work on perfecting all of their strokes.  However, as the season progresses, the swimmers begin to train specifically for the strokes they will be swimming at the championship meets. About two weeks before districts, the team tapered, the gradual decrease of difficulty during practices, in order to prepare for the meet.

“I liked swim season because of the team atmosphere,” sophomore Katie Noonan said. “It was positive and everyone was very encouraging to everyone throughout their swims, no matter what.”
