Swim Team wins 2nd place in City Championships
By Coach Mahoney
We did it Again! Back to Back! The Patterson swim team came in second place in the Baltimore City Swimming Championships.
This was a tremendous year for the team. The new school building did not have a swimming pool built into it. Coach Mahoney did everything she could to keep the Varsity sport here at Patterson High School. She discussed a plan with LA Fitness on Eastern Avenue for the team to use their facilities during practice sessions. The pool does not have a deep end, so the team practices starts when we show up early at the Swim Meets. The pool does offer three practice lanes, which has been very beneficial. We also have a new second Coach, Ms. Blum, who came from a different school and brought her expertise to help the team.
The members of the team were very hardworking and willing to learn all the new strokes. The team showed tremendous improvement each meet. What a fantastic season!
The following students were the members of the Swim Team:
