Baldwin’s boys and girls swim teams both suffered losses against Upper Saint Clair on Thursday night, but are still proud of their performance since the shutdown.

Senior Olivia Los said that, despite losing the meet, the Baldwin swim teams are doing the best they can under the circumstances.

“I think that COVID definitely affected some aspects of competing, but I think as a team we’ve done the best we can,” Los said.

The loss against Upper Saint Clair comes as a disappointment, but Los said it doesn’t reflect the team’s true ability.

“We may have lost, but we still did really well and showed our hard work,” Los said. “Both boys and girls had some close swims, some with only a millisecond of difference.”

Los also said that brothers Dylan and Evan Stokes had standout performances during the meet.

“I would say they definitely did well last night,” Los said. “We’ve all put a ton of effort into our practices and it’s good to see it in individual events.”

As a team, the both boys and girls swimmers will be looking to improve their personal bests, as well as work cohesively as a team.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing us improve even more, and I can already tell our hard work has paid off,” Los said.
