For boys’ swim, there is one goal, and one goal only this season, and that is to dominate in what they do best. The boys’ senior swimming class this year is one of the strongest yet—not only have they swam together in the pool for a long time, they all share a tight bond outside of swimming. This makes them even more motivated to be unified and lead their team to a victorious season.
“We have a good amount of senior boys that are excited to have a successful senior year. I think their leadership will help the boys do well this year. The boys have won two Regional titles in a row, and they want to continue that success,” said Lees.
With a powerful senior class and several other key swimmers for the boys, the stakes are set high for the team. Hoping to continue their streak and have a “threepeat” at Regionals this year, their goal is to stay at the top, and that is where they are aiming.
“In order to reach these goals [of winning Regionals and beyond], the boys are going to have to not only be pumped for every race, but we have to motivate each other to crush the competition and stay positive,” said senior captain Andrew Martinez.
Along with the Warriors standout senior class, the boys’ will be backed by a strong junior, sophomore, and freshman class. This years boys’ team is among the strongest Sherwood has had in many years, and what would be a better way to send the seniors off with a third consecutive regionals title.
The Warriors depth has already been shown as seniors Declan Black, Andrew Christianson, Jason Kim, as well as junior Jamison Crow, sophomore Malec Fahmy, and freshman Michael Parker placed first in a 135- 49 victory against Quince Orchard.
