TKC went to the girl’s swim and dive practice Nov. 15. Bella Borbonus, junior, has been swimming since her freshman year. She says it’s difficult to get back into swim shape, but she’s optimistic about improving her 100 freestyle time this season to get a state cut. “I like the social aspect of it,” Borbonus said. “I enjoy meeting new people who join the team and I enjoy hanging out with old friends. The atmosphere of the swim team is partially competitive, because everyone is trying to improve their times and get into shape and beat Beasley’s standards, but I’d say it’s really welcoming and kind of like a family.”
