According to Head Coach Chris Plumb, the men’s swimming team is preparing for its upcoming meet on Dec. 27 against Homestead and Zionsville at home.

Swimmer and senior Andrew Rafalko said, “The season so far has been going well. We’ve won both of our high school dual meets and everyone swam their mid-season meet and since we just finished our mid-season meets we’re getting back up in training and working hard again.”

Swimmer and senior Jacob Pitz said the team as a whole has upped their practices distance and intensity wise.

“Our most intense month of training is December. We have practices every day except Sunday throughout all of break and we don’t really have time to go on vacation because we have practice everyday except Christmas, although practices are optional from the 22nd to the 26th. It can be hard for swimmers to balance social life, school and swimming, especially those who are involved in other extracurricular (activities),” Pitz said.

Rafalko said since the team is in season, practices are mandatory besides the optional days. He said he is able to balance social activities since practices are early in the morning and afternoon allowing him time to do things in the evening.

“(The junior nationals) didn’t go as well as I planned but I know what went wrong and I’m working to change and improve so that I’m more prepared for future meets,” Rafalko said. “At this point we are training for high school State at the end of February. We have a club meet in January but we train through that meet.”
