The swim team is sending 15 students to CCS after a long season.

Both girls and boys swimming had very solid seasons this year and came in fifth out of eight at PALs. 

Kieran Duffey, a Woodside junior on the swim team, had a handful of personal success this year and goes on to talk about how the season is going for the entire swim team. 

“The girls’ varsity and JV team [did] pretty good and [won] a lot of their meets, but the boys on the other hand [did not do] as great,” Duffey said. 

“Our girls’ varsity team… won every meet except the one against Carlmont,” said Hannah Lalonde, a Woodside senior on the swim team, said. 

Lalonde goes into some detail about how the boys’ swim team’s season is going so far and what has made each of them successful this year.

“Boys JV and V have been performing really well and taking some meets home for the team” Lalonde said. 

Lalonde talks about the success freshman have been having this year and explains why the future is so bright for Woodside swim. 

“I would definitely give lots of credit to our varsity freshmen who have been stepping up to the plate; a big shoutout to freshmen Seth Collet and Kate Stevenson who are some up and coming athletes to look out for” Lalonde said.

Big congrats to the boy swimmers who qualified for CCS: Eric Spangner, James Gillbrand, Seth Collet, Max Mueller, Elliot Jerng, and Zach Olson.

Also, congratulations to our huge group of girl swimmer who qualified for CCS: Audry Chung, Kyla Burfoot, Elodie Serves, Elana Huang, Margot Legros, Hannah Lalonde, Sophie Hunter, Katt Stevens, and Sadie Cryan.
