“My journey through high school swim has been one I’ll never forget. My freshman year, the coaches welcomed me on their team with open arms and lots of support. As the years went on, my coach’s passion increased tenfold, in turn making my attitude about high school swim grow as well. I really loved to see how the team has progressed throughout my four years at Ocean Lakes. My contributions to the team are all thanks to my teammates. They were the ones pushing me, driving me, and acting as the motivating factor for my success. I’m so proud to say that I was part of a team that continually held district and regional titles. Arguably, my favorite memory was being able to bring home the state title in the 100-yard breaststroke for my coach. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think I could have done it. As I move forward, I will never forget these years,” said senior Kendall Ewing. “Ocean Lakes has done nothing but give to me; I’m so glad to say that I gave it something back.”
