With the 2023 Swimming season approaching an end it’s a good time to highlight two key members of the team.

With their first meeting on December 11, 2023. The Barrons have had a rough season so far, but still, there is a lot to be proud of. 

Captain Emma Aponte said, “Our season has been alright although we haven’t won yet we are still having fun and improving .”

When asked what the team has done well this year Emma said “Some of our new swimmers who started this year have improved a lot and begin swimming in more meets.”

I asked Emma to highlight a member, and she chose Marcus Gomez. Emma said “He is a great swimmer on our team, he is hardworking and supportive. And has improved very quickly.”

Swim member Angel Makaj when said the season has been “a ride.” 

Angel said, “There were a lot of ups and downs but it’s great how much improvement the team has made.”

Angel said the main thing the team has done this year to improve is “Shaving time by, being committed, learning the proper techniques, and wanting to go out and compete.”

In preparation for the GMC’s the Barrons are pulling out all the stops and locking in.

Angel said “Hard practices, and we had an alumni come back to a practice and coached us up and gave us some set to work on to get us ready. Waking up early mornings and getting ready for these meets.”

Swim team fanatic James Fudge said, “I will be there, it’s go time.”

Coming off a tough loss to JFK High School, I can sense a win coming in their next meet against South Plainfield.
