Dublin High School Swim Team has just completed its first ever undefeated season! Although the season was cut short due to COVID-19, this was a remarkable feat nonetheless for a program that is on the rise. One of the memorable highlights of the year was a resounding victory over Foothill.
The 2020 season was off to a great start, as once again, we had tremendous participation fielding a swim and dive team of over 100 athletes. From the outset of the season the swimmers worked extremely hard and bought into the season plan outlined by the Dublin High School coaching staff. Coach Rod, Coach Jen, Coach Reed, and Coach Mann demanded the swimmers work their hardest at each and every practice and the swimmers rose to the challenge. The coaches are just as disappointed as the swimmers about the shortness of our season.
Despite the brevity of the season the coaches could not have run swim meets, social events, and team functions without the diligent help of Heather Jenkins, Luce Cory, and Jen May. The last two seasons have not been possible without the daily painstaking work of our team mom Michelle Guidi. She has worked with the coaches and the parents to ensure a memorable season each year for our swimmers. It is only through parent participation that we can successfully run our swim meets, social events, and organize our teams functions. The coaches are extremely grateful for all the parents that volunteer their time to make every season enjoyable for our swimmers.
Lastly, the coaching staff is extremely proud of our senior swimmers. Another first for our program is that we will have eight swimmers swim at the next level. Below is the list of graduating swimmers and their future plans:
