With tryouts for the swimming team beginning Nov. 1 through Nov. 2, the athletes are getting ready for the season both mentally and physically.

“I’m really excited for the season to start, I think the meets will be really fun and it’s a good way to meet upperclassmen” said Isabelle Jimenez, 9.

Whether it is doing a fall sport or swimming with a local club team, the swimmers are doing everything they can to have a successful season.
