Senior Kyle Mcginnis said, “We have improved a lot since last year because our team is growing.”

The Ross swim and dive team has come a long way since the previous season after winning most of their meets this year. 

Mcginnis said, “The team’s best accomplishment is probably coming in so close with Talawanda in SWOC because they have won the conference for 14 years in a row.” 

Angel stated, “The team has gotten a lot closer since day one, and we are staying motivated for next season.” 

With their newfound success, the student body looks forward to seeing what the team can do next year.
