Franklin’s varsity swim team has recently wrapped up a great season, with a 7-1 record as their legacy for the 2013-2014 winter sports season.

Varsity swimmer Emily Langmeyer commented on the season after the winter sports’ season was over.

“I really enjoy swim practice,” said Langmeyer. “It’s fun to be around your friends and know that all the hard work you put in at practice will pay off at a meet. I don’t find practice too difficult, but it’s good to have a challenging drill or set to really push yourself to get better.

The Franklin swim team lived up this season to the high standards for Franklin High athletes.

“Both teams did incredibly well,” Langmeyer commented. “We had a team record finish at Hock Champs this year. All of our meets were hard fought.”

However, no matter how important team work is, each individual must contribute to the team’s victory. The swim team is filled with incredibly talented individual athletes.

 “Our team is filled with amazingly talented swimmers who are always pushing themselves for the win. I personally cut my times in three events.”

With the end of winter sports, the spring season is about to kick off. See the Franklin High School website for more details.
