5:30 A.M.-The alarm clock screamed into their ears. Each one dragged themselves out of bed and stumbled in the darkness for their clothes. They slipped on whatever they could find and trudged to school by 6:00. They put on swimsuits and wondered if they would make it through the vigorous workout.
Forcingly, the managed to hurl themselves into the icy green chlorinated water, which quickly woke them up. The morning practice ended, as the members of the swim team got ready for school in a locker room, where electricity and hot water came in short supply.
Both the girls' and boys' teams survived early workouts and vigorous schedules, which swimming called for, including after school and summer practices.
Consisting of 13 underclassmen out of 13 members, the girls' team finished with a record of 6-5. By competing mostly at the Fresh Soph level, the boys' team gave top opponents like Davenport West and Peoria High problems, despite their 1-10 record.
Swimming may have provided a hobby for team members, but other members took it seriously.
The swimmers dragged themselves out of the now warm water, tired and sore. They quickly dressed, rushed to class in time for first period and fought off sleep for the rest of the day. The swimmers knew the next day, the routing would begin over again.
