Scott County’s swim team had a strong showing last season, and this year they plan to continue to see growth. Losing great seniors from last year, this season the returning members will need to step up in work ethic and leadership if the team is going to be able to continue at the same level of success.

Some of the returning highlighted swimmers of last season are Kaleb Brannock and Riette Bloomfield. Brannock is a junior at Scott County with a time of 49.88 seconds in 100 backstroke and 23.93 seconds in backstroke for the 200 medley relay at the 2018 state competition. Bloomfield, also a junior, had a the time of 1:55.45 in 200 free at the 2018 regionals. They both plan on improving these scores this season.

Coach Jeremy Fink said “Last year we lost 9 seniors, and right now we are in the rebuilding phase with younger swimmers joining and new swimmers who need some help. But we still have experienced swimmers who will do great at state and regionals. Overall, the season should be similar to years’ past, but the makeup of the team is just different. I’m looking forward to a great season even in the face with a lot of changes taking place.”

Scott County has a large swim team and each year more and more join. This year one of the newest swimmers includes Hailey Griffith, a freshman at Scott County.  Griffith said she chose to join the team because “Swimming is a way that I can get active without any real injuries like what my sister gets from running. It’s easy, but at the same time challenging and fun, and I already feel like I have another family.”

The Cardinal’s biggest competitor historically is Lexington Catholic High School. However, the Cards will work hard and try their best to beat the Knights this year. The swimmers are practicing non stop to get ready for their first home meet on November 28th, 2018 located at The Pavilion at 7:00 pm. Students will get in free, and the team hopes to have many of their peers present to cheer them on.
