On Thursday Feb. 13, and Friday Feb. 14, Mountain Vista’s Swim and Dive team traveled to the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center (VMAC) in Thornton to participate in the Swim and Dive State Competition. Over two days, the team competed against other swimmers from all over Colorado.

“[The season] felt really good,” senior Annie Osmun said. “Overall, we were all really happy, and we were all just so proud of each other.” 

It was the strong bond and relationships they all had with one another that got them through the season.

“[This season] was very successful from a bonding standpoint,” senior Brooke Ford said. “We got a lot closer than we ever had been before.”
