The beauty of swimming is that it can be an individual sport just as much as it can be a team sport. With our numbers being low this season, it will be very tough to compete on the team level with other schools that have squads two, three or four times our size. And with swimming being a one-class sport, we swim against lots of schools that are two, three or even 10-times our size.
