Triton swim team to compete at states

(Continued)

The team competed against six other Cape Ann League teams, including North Reading, Manchester Essex, Lynnfield, Masconomet, Ipswich and Hamilton-Wenham. Despite being rivals in just about every other sport, Sagaser said the athletes from the team’s three schools have become close, relishing the shared experience of getting to compete for their schools.

“It’s been a very positive experience. The kids from these three towns have come together as a team and bonded, they feel pride in what they’re doing,” Sagaser said.

Now with the first season nearly in the books, Sagaser said she hopes that the team’s run to the state championship meet will attract more students to swimming and ultimately help grow the program into something bigger.

“We’re looking to build the team,” she said. “And with the publicity people learn we have a swim team and it’s there as a winter sport that wasn’t there before.”
