Thoughts on the Swim Team

Carolyn Powell, a Sophomore at St. Thomas Aquinas, says she loves being on the swim team. She stated, “I really enjoy swimming, and I also am really happy with my teammates and coaches.” Carolyn transferred from Marjory Stoneman Douglas to join the St. Thomas Aquinas Swimming and Diving Team. Sophia Itzkowitz, a sophomore at STA, says, “The swimming and diving team is a really good place to get to know people. Swimming gives me a break from all the drama, and I also love all of my coaches and teammates so much.”
