Severn School’s Girls Varsity Swim Team took the IAAM B Conference by storm this past season. With eight wins and zero losses, the team finished out the regular season undefeated, and proceeded to the IAAM Championship Meet. Some meets were certainly closer than others, such as the tight matchup versus Roland Park with a 54-40 win, contrasted with the absolute blowout 111-43 versus AACS. One of the final meets against Maryvale was the team’s toughest matchup yet, but with incredible teamwork and strong finishes from the relay teams, Severn came out with a 90-80 win.
Considering the leadership from the admirable and unbelievably speedy captains Lana Cate, Sarah Gershman, and Lizzie Biran, the team’s success is really no surprise. “I think the strongest attributes we have are our numbers and our tenacity. We’ve done consistently well this season and I’m feeling good about our outcome for championships,” senior Lana Cate explained during the season.
And rightfully so! The Severn girls absolutely dominated at championships, not only winning first place in the IAAM B Conference, but also coming in second place overall among all the teams in the league (including A, B, and C conferences).
The Severn Girls Varsity Swim Team has proven themselves to be an undeniably talented, driven, successful group. This past season was surely one to remember, and served as a reminder of the determination and grit that define our athletic teams. There is no doubt that the Severn School swim program has an extremely bright future to look forward to.
