For many years, the focus has always been on the water polo team here at South Broward. But now, after many years of overshadowing, the swim team is finally stepping through the light. Many people do not realize the importance of the swim team. For four months leading up to water polo season, the players condition by doing swim. The more these players are in the water, the more prepared they will be when it is time for water polo.

The team this year have just finished with districts and are looking forward to ending the season with a great experience at regionals.

According to the coach, the team has been doing very well this year and is waiting to see how the team does at their last meet of the season.

The team’s success wouldn’t be without the support of their coach.

Meet Coach Bloese the swim coach here at SBHS. Bloese has been swimming ever since she was about eight years old.

“I’ve always loved the water, I looked for any excuse to get in”, says Bloese.

About eight years ago, Bloese began coaching at South Broward. The amount of people that were on the team went from about thirty members to sixty-eight people. The swimmers on the team are very passionate about the sport.

“Swim is something I live for”, says Emma Leto, a junior on the team. She loves swim because it is a good way to condition for what is really important to her. Leto trains everyday for water polo by getting in shape in the water.

Some members on the team are so dedicated that they swim not only for the school, but for a recreational club team. This helps them get better and better as they’re constantly practicing.

This year the team has improved in many ways. Coach says that this year she was surprised to see more individuals signing up for BCAA, which is county meet against schools all around South Florida. Two of the top swimmers going to BCAA were Andy and Alex. Their times this year have dropped over the past few meets. But, they aren’t the only ones. Ishola, a 17- year-old junior, said that his time in the 50-Free has gone from a 28.29 to a 24.81.

Even with Irma and three weeks of no practice, the team still pulled through. This year, the majority of the team made it to district finals, and are ready to win.  One of the new members on the team, Logan Mazor, a 14-year-old freshman, is going to districts. Mazor has been swimming for two years now and says that he is excited to go to districts because it’s a new opportunity for him to go somewhere with swim.
