It's that time of the year again where expectations and excitement run high for the Reedley High School swim team. With a new season upon us, there are many questions and doubts surrounding the team's capabilities. However, Coach Kara Pavlovic believes that this year's girls' program will be a force to be reckoned with, with their sights set on winning the TCC League Championship. The team has been putting in hard work and dedication during the off season, swimming and recruiting new talent. According to Coach Pavlovic, they have been focused on building a strong and well-rounded team, and they are determined to make a mark in the league this year. When asked about the key players on the team, Coach Pavlovic mentions two returning seniors, Grace Tademy and Kanada Enns. Both of these girls will play significant roles in the team's success this season. Tademy will be a crucial part of the relays, as well as the 200 and 100 Free events. Enns, on the other hand, will also be a key member of the relays, and will also shine in the 50 and 100 Free events. It's clear that both these seniors have honed their skills and will be major assets for the Reedley swim team. But it's not just the seniors who will make an impact on the team. Junior swimmers Sophia Milton and Chloe Haywood will also have significant contributions to the team this year. Their skills in both the individual events and relays are expected to add significant points to the overall score. These two juniors have shown great dedication and hard work during the off season, which has not gone unnoticed by Coach Pavlovic. Alongside the experienced swimmers, the team will also see new talent this year in the form of freshmen Madison Nava and Emma-Lee Talley. These two young swimmers are expected to support the team with their individual events and hopefully earn a spot on the relays. Coach Pavlovic is excited about the potential these freshmen possess and is confident in their abilities to contribute to the team. Leadership is crucial in any successful team, and this year's captains, Kanada Enns and Grace Tademy, embody everything that a team captain should be. Coach Pavlovic praises their dedication and hard work, mentioning that they attend every practice, constantly pushing themselves to perform better, both in and out of the pool.
