An Update on the 2022 BC Boys Swim Season

From the month of November, the Barracudas boys swim and dive have been hard at work. Having been successful at almost all of their meets this season, the swim team has pushed hard to achieve their victories. Getting up early at around 5:00 am every day for morning swim practice, the boys have endured numerous obstacles. However, so far, their hard work has paid off.

Recently, at the Marquette invite, the boys did exceptionally well, ending the competition with three school records broken. First off was the 200 Medley relay that was broken by Michael Long (‘22), Brady Miller (‘22), Stuart Seymour (‘23), and Thomas Bergin (‘24). The four boys swam a total combined time of 1:32.50 which led the Barracudas off to a great start.

Next, Seymour (‘23) broke the 100 fly school record, swimming a whopping time of 50.49 seconds, beating the record by 0.03. Finally, the same four boys (Long, Miller, Seymour, and Bergin) broke the 200 freestyle school record, going a time of 1:25.44 and ultimately giving the Barracudas the energy to finish to the end of the meet and, overall, take the  runner-up spot.

This is only one single meet, but it shows the power the team has. The Brookfield Barracudas from the start of their season have been plowing through all of their swim meets like nothing. From their first duel meet they have been unbeatable, until recently at their dual meet against Arrowhead resulted in a tie.

Ultimately, the Barracuda team started out strong and are still going strong. As the championship season starts getting closer, the boys will work even harder to strive for their highest goals, and BCHS looks forward to seeing the full potential of the swim team and its members in the upcoming swim meets.
