Sports Spotlight: Girls Swim & Dive

The Girls Swim & Dive team has fewer members this season than the boys’ team, but they are still making a splash. Each meet, swimmers and divers continue to set personal records and improve over the season. The team will compete in the sectional preliminaries on Thursday, Feb. 6, at Highland Hills Middle School. Sophomore Cassandra Fetz is on the three-member dive team, and sophomore Sydney Lamaster is on the swim team. Read more for the Sports Spotlight Q&A.

Sydney is in her second year of focusing on competitive swimming. When she was younger, she joined her siblings on their swim team but didn’t take the sport seriously until joining the Providence team.

She is in the House of Spirit, spring musical, children’s show, Book Club, Drawing Club, and Providence Singers. She also takes part in an art class with Louisville Visual Art.

Her events are the 50-yard backstroke in the 200-yard medley relay, 50 or 100-yard freestyle, 200-yard freestyle relay (first leg), and 400 freestyle relay (second leg). Sometimes she will swim the 200 freestyle or 50-yard breaststroke if needed.

Question: What do you like about being on the Swim & Dive Team?
Answer:
What I like about being on the Swim & Dive Team is Coach Jim Pfeiffer’s coaching and the people on the team. Coach Jim is really casual with most practices and is really nice about telling us what we do wrong and right. It’s super easy to join even if you aren’t regularly involved in sports and can easily get you a varsity letter.

Q: What is your favorite event?
A: My favorite event is the 50 free because I’m best at freestyle, and I like trying to beat my old time. Doing a sprint is less stressful for me since it goes faster.

Q: What has been a highlight of the season for you?
A: A highlight of the season for me was when I beat my time at a meet and got first in my heat, which made me happy, since that doesn’t happen that often.

Q: What is your favorite subject?
A: My favorite subject is art because I get to be creative and improve my talents.

Cassandra is in her first year diving and also plays Softball and Girls Golf. She is in the House of Loyalty.

Question: What do you like about being on the Swim & Dive Team?
Answer: I like the Dive Team because not all practices are serious but also fun. We sometimes play water polo.

Q: What is your favorite dive?
A: My favorite dive is probably my reverse because it is my cleanest dive.

Q: What has been a highlight of the season for you?
A: A highlight of my season is probably getting second place in a big meet.

Q: What do you like about being a Pioneer?
A: You meet so many nice people and great friends and teachers. Being a Pioneer is the best!
