What’s Happening with the Varsity Swim Team


Onovu Otitigbe-Dangerfield, Co-Editor-in-Chief

The Varsity Girls Swimming and Diving Team is often overlooked at AHS. Students are unaware of local meets, unaware of the progress they are making, and simply uninformed about the amazing swimmers there are to represent Albany High School.

Also, several of the girls that have qualified for sectionals. These include Edith DeRosa Purcell, Maggie Carroll, Faith O’toole, Adina Klingerman, Olivia Henry, Mackenzie Stevenson, Grace VanBowen, Delia Weinstein and Kayla Huba. That’s nearly half the team!

Additionally there is a diver in 8th grade that is on the team, Anna Flanders. She is phenomenal ranking 1st in the section and 3rd in the state. These are truly amazing accomplisments!

There are great things happening at Albany High and the swim team is one of them. Their next meet is this Friday at Emma Willard, and it starts at 4:30. Sectionals land on the 8th and 9th of November.

Stay tuned for more information about the team!
