Boys, girls swim teams defeat West Mifflin

Alli Schroeder
The Baldwin boys and girls swim teams compete in the winter season.

The boys and girls swim teams both won at West Mifflin on Tuesday. 

Senior Gabi Moder was glad to get a win. 

“We were happy about it,” Moder said. “I think we were pretty excited because we are getting close to our last meet.”

Senior Dylan Lubarski said it was one of the strongest wins of the season for both the boys and the girls. 

“I think this was truly a dominant win where everything felt like it went right,” Lubarski said. 

Particularly, the team stood out with their relays. 

“Usually with our relays, we stay at a pace with the other team the whole time. But this time, it felt like we dominated the race and there was no point I felt like we were behind,” Lubarski said

Moder noted that senior Alayna Kercher stood out with her 200 and 500 relays.

As seniors, both Moder and Lubarski have different perspectives on their last season coming to a close. 

“I’m sad because I’m a senior and I’ve been doing it for so long, so it’s a pretty big thing for it to be completely over,” Moder said. 

Lubarski, instead, feels something close to relief. 

“Swim is a lot of work, so it’s almost a relief that the season is almost over. But it would feel nice to end on a positive note next week against a tough opponent in Fox Chapel,” Lubarski said.

The team competes on Thursday night at Fox Chapel at 4 p.m.
