I didn’t choose to swim for the attention – unfortunately there is very little of that in the sport that I love so much. I often think that we, as swimmers are to blame for the lack of attention, but that is a whole different story for another blog post.

Every now and then however, we do something right and get ourselves a little bit of the limelight. We get noticed for our accomplishments which we spend hours upon hours working for, every single day. It’s nice to get the recognition and it is amazing to see what it does to the morale of a team.

On Wednesday last week, KXLY4 which covers Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and the Inland Northwest did a feature on Whitworth Swimming Men’s team who have won the last 77 in conference dual meets that they’ve competed in. It has been an honor to be part of this incredible streak & I hope that we can keep it going for another 10 years.

Below is the segmented that was featured on the 6pm and 11pm news. A huge thank you to Dave Erickson for his interest in the team!

GO BUCS!
