The Kayhi swim team will be hitting the water in Petersburg on Sept. 4. The experienced team seems to be ready this year said Co-coach Megan Beattie.
“This will be our fourth week of practice so far,” said Beattie.
This year the team has a new head coach, Patrick Burda, who has brought something new to the team’s workout schedule.
“[Burda] is focusing more on technique and drill work rather than yardage,” said Beattie. “We also have fewer early morning practices so we can focus on smaller group and individual work and we don’t have Saturday practices so it’s not a big push to get yardage in.”
However the year isn’t going to be an easy one. Beattie believes a big challenge will be the numbers of students they have on the team.
“The team lost a handful of seniors last year so fielding relays will be a big challenge,” said Beattie.
The Kayhi swim team has several challenges to overcome this year. We’ll see them in action in Petersburg on Sept. 4.
