UP, UP, AND AWAY ... If done properly, div- ing starts provided a quick pace almost im- mediately. Senior Matt Rae launches himself from the platform in order to get a good start. IN LANE ONE . . . Scheduling sometimes became important toward the end of a meet as fatigue would influence performance. Juniors Erik Lind and Chris Cook receive their schedules from swimming Coach Howard Sevel along with senior Todd Ferguson. Plunge . . . STEADY BEAT . . . The freestyle stroke was one of the fastest used and re- quired a steady breathing rhythm. A racing Spartan maintains a consistent rate in order to maximize speed. ■BP SWIMMING m ^^ GIRLS WSHS OPP. 108 Oakton 61 114 T.C.

Stated Sevel, " I feel that if someone tries hard, they deserve a chance to swim in the meets. " TThis philosophy moti- vated the Spartans as all tried their hardest to win. By allowing the less-experienced to swim, the Spartans lost several relays, but in the long run, this philo- sophy produced greater swimmers. Sevel continued, " It makes it en- joyable for the swimmers, and it improves our team tor the upcoming years. " The best effort was all that the Spartans gave. Encouraged by the spirit from their parents and the togetherness of the team, both the boys and girls triumphed this season. Although the swimming team possessed vital personnel like Jesicca Cook, Jennifer Tweedie, and Todd Ferguson, the divers also possessed great talent. Mark Mazuzan, last year ' s top diver, again led the divers. This was Mazuzan ' s last year at West Springfield, and losing all of his talent will hurt the Spar- tans in the future. Luckily the Spartans have Paul Lord. Besides being a potential star diver, he also participated in the swim meets. In addition to Lord, a junior, the Spartans possess a rising star in Katie Myers. She lacked the great talent that the senior divers possessed, but with determination and coaching by Sevel, she surpassed all female divers. Suffering through the pains of learn- ing, Myers greatly developed her talent. In general, Sevel was greatly impressed by the talent on the team. He named Libby McArdle as his most valuable player, while Nicole Duke was his most versatile. Sevel is looking forward to next year. " We should be very strong next year. I think we have a chance at beating both Robinson and Lake Braddock with our new talent, " stated Sevel. 4 90/ Sports
