Mustang senior swimmers look back with sentiment

Madison Koczersut– Mustangs Ahead

Sports(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- It’s a very sad feeling when a sports season comes to an end, especially for high school seniors.

It feels as if there is something missing and a hole in your heart when students put up their cleats for the last time, score their last goal, make their last touchdown, or leave the court, field, or pool for the last time.

LRHS swimmers recently dove into competition for the last time. They put so much work into this season and are excited for the underclassmen as they continue.

LRHS senior Sebastian Aguirre said, “My senior year went better than I could imagine. I got second place at states and I can’t wait to get back to the drawing board and see what waits for me in club season.”

Aguirre finished second in the state in the 100-yard butterfly race.

Aguirre added, “I will miss the connection within the team the most and all the energy that everyone brings. I am currently being looked at by a few colleges, but in the end, I know I’ll end up going to a school where both athletics and academics itself will benefit me greatly.”

LRHS senior Ata Akar said, “I am going to miss swimming with my friends. I loved the meets and the adrenaline every time I would dive into the water. Swim was a good part of my life, but I need to focus on school. I’m excited for my future.”

The seniors couldn’t be more thankful for their coaches, family, and friends that have supported them throughout the years.
