Boys’ swim and dive has high hopes for the season, despite this year being a rebuilding process, according to senior Sahil Desai, a captain with senior Liran Bromberg.

“We lost a lot of seniors from last year. A lot of them were club swimmers who swam all year round and it led to a loss of experience for the team,” Desai said.

However, Bromberg still expects the team to do well. “I think this year’s team is up to the challenge,” he said.

Bromberg also added that there was a spirit of camaraderie between the veterans and rookies.

“It is nice to see the returning swimmers initiate the new swimmers into the sport. Hopefully this will lead to these guys coming back the next few years,” he said

According to Desai, the rookies are all excited to be there.

“They all seem very enthusiastic and come to practice ready to go,” he said.

According to Suri, the upperclassmen are doing a good job as well.

“It is nice to see the veteran swimmers put in a good effort. It sets a model for the new swimmers,” he said.

Suri said that he is hopeful that the team will finish at least fourth out of the six teams in the Bay State Conference.

Bromberg also has high hopes many hopes for the postseason.

“I really want to bring a sizeable group to states and have them do well,” he said.

Suri said that “the team really wants relays to make states. I also want as many individuals to make state qualifiers and do well there.”
