The University of Lynchburg swim club made a transition into a varsity team and started a long journey toward success this semester.
At the beginning of that journey, some of their fellow teams hopped on Twitter to celebrate. The first team to do so was the Lynchburg Women’s Basketball team in response to a tweet that the swim team sent out about the first day of their season.
This past week, the University of Lynchburg Men’s and Women’s Swim Team began their first ever week of varsity-level practices. On Monday, they began bright and early at 7:00 a.m. in the Wake Field House ready to lift with the help of the University’s Strength and Conditioning Coach Edward Smith, according to second year swimmer Alexis Fabilla. Fabilla said that the theme for this year for the entire team is all about creating traditions for the program and creating expectations for the swimmers to live and grow by. Fittingly, she finished by insisting, “Tradition starts now!”
