Our Swimming Department was thrilled to host 40 swimmers from The British International School Puxi in November. This competition marks our first swimming competition of the academic year and our first opportunity to invite other swimmers to our campus within the past two years.
The atmosphere on Saturday morning was crackling with positive electricity. For the swimmers who have grown up on our pool deck at first, it felt nostalgic. The swimmers set the pace of the meet early on by smashing long-standing school records in both individual & relays. This sentimental feeling quickly changed into a vision of what is possible. Swimmers were running towards one another with eyes wide open in awe of the achievements they were making.
Sport is one of the only things that can move us off of the sofa in a surge of emotion. The focus of our team is firmly on envisioning the future. Keeping in mind, we are only limited by what we perceive to be our limitations. The SCIS swimming team continues to use our sport of swimming as a vehicle for building character, grit, and a stable belief in ourselves and our ability.
In all, members of our team broke 11 school records. Our coaching team is proud of the team and each individual. Our school records breakers will be awarded certificates of their achievements at a school assembly in front of their peers.
Thank you to our wonderful parent community, particularly those who volunteered within this meet! Thank you to our coaches for all the hard work through challenging times, keeping the team together, and amazingly our team did not lose one student-athlete to COVID-19 related de-motivation. Last but not least, thank you to our swimmers for continuing to believe in our program.
