Both the boys and girls teams of the Zionsville swimming and diving teams lost key members of last year's squad due to graduation.
But through the first weeks of practice, the hopes are high that the teams can match recent seasons’ successes.
“It is a little hard to tell with the boys since this is their first day in the pool,” Zionsville head coach Scott Kubly said Monday, Nov. 5. “For the girls, we are starting week three ,and things have been going well. The enthusiasm is up, and the goals are high.”
The girls are coming off a second place finish in the state meet a season ago.
While key squad members Zoe Mattingly and Lizzie Lyons graduated, the Eagles return some key pieces, including two members from both the state champion 200-yard freestyle relay and runner-up 400-yard freestyle relay.
“A lot of the girls have shared a little bit with me as terms of their goals,” Kubly said. “Obviously they want to go back and win the sectional and perform well at conference and do what they can at state. Coming in as the defending state runner-up, the bar has been set. They have accepted it, and they are doing what they can to do well.”
