On Saturday December 3, the Millbrook Swim Team will have their first meet. It starts at 9am at Jim Barnett and is against Sherando. Joel Sherman, a newcomer to the sport and team, said, “We’ve been working really hard and we have a lot of room for improvement but we’ll get there.”
Last year, there were six boys on the team. This year, they’ve almost doubled that amount with 11 boys on the team, so the swimmers are hopeful for a stronger boys team with more participants to work with. The new swimmers include freshmen Tyler Abercombie, Michael Olejarz and Brennan Dooley, juniors Joel Sherman and Darin Douglas, and senior Hayden Wilfong. The amount of girls on the team has also increased, with three new freshman girls, including Renee Garneau, Ellie Bowman and Katherine Borland, and one new sophomore, Lilah Palmer.
Come out and support your fellow Pioneers this Saturday!
