Rachel Scheffer, a freshman at LCHS, gave her opinion on the team this year. “It’s my first year on the high school swim team”, she said. “It will be much harder, but I will work on that challenge”. She also said she was both nervous for this year.


Nathan Holliman, another freshman on the team from LCHS, said he was very excited for the team this year. “I can’t wait for the end of the year meets, especially the state meets,” he said. “I love swimming, and I’m extremely excited for the meets”.


This year, the swim team has two coaches, Jamie Yoder and Sheyenne Fish. Yoder is the head coach of both the LCHS swim team and the Tellico Village summer swim team.
