Rockwood’s first swim team is giving many first-time competitive swimmers a chance to shine.
And at a recent meet, that is exactly what team members did, getting ribbons in two of the five events they entered.
Starting the season with 18 new swimmers and keeping 12, the youth showed they were up to the challenge and fun of competitive swimming.
“I was glad that many stuck with it. It was a great start for our first year,” coach Cassandra Dothard said. “All the kids doing it loved it. Many of them, they don’t participate in other sports.”
