Hard at Work in the Off-Season!

Both the high school men’s and women’s teams have big goals for their respective seasons in 2014. To prepare – the guys and girls are working out all summer long!

Monday through Thursday, they’re in the pool at 7:00AM. After swimming until 8:30, they tackle dry-land training like weight lifting, cardio, plyometrics and more.

Girls Season Goals
The high school girls have several team goals, in addition to individual goals. Here are the top three goals:

  • Send swimmers to the state meet in Marshalltown for the 12th time in 13 years
  • Finish top two in the Metro
  • Repeat as Lincoln Invite: Pink in the Pool Champions

With faster and faster state cut times, strong competition in the metro and the addition of Cedar Rapids Washington to the LHS Invite – it will be challenge. But this team of dedicated young women is up for it!

Boys Season Goals
Just like the girls, the guys have big goals for their season. The top three team goals are:

  • Send swimmers to the state meet in Marshalltown for the 7th straight year
  • Finish top two in the Metro
  • An 8 win season (at a minimum!)

Again – these goals will take hard work! But the guys are extremely motivated to succeed.

The Rails are already looking forward to the competition of swim season!
