Swim team ready to dive in

Angelina Ortiz – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS Swimming and Diving Team will participate in the first meet of the season at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the Selby Aquatic Center in Sarasota.  It kicks off the competitive season following the  Aug. 19 team fundraiser at Ace Hardware Store.

Mustangs will compete against swimmers and divers from other high schools in the area. This is the first time the team gets to see what kind of competition they are up against this season. This particular meet is very important, it makes swimmers more comfortable, and helps them understand how to prepare for upcoming meets as well.

On Aug. 19, members of the swimming and diving team and the team’s parent volunteers held their annual car wash fundraiser. The effort was very successful as they raised over $1,200 in only a few hours.

“It was a great day. I am very grateful to all your hard worked and commitment to this event,” said head coach Julie Santiago in an announcement about the car wash.
