Dolphins wrap up regular season
Submitted By Tammy Ortega
In the final tune-up for East Bay Swim League regular season dual meet, the Treeview Dolphins competed in their final home meet against the Mission Highland Sharks on Saturday, July 23.
Keeping up with tradition the Dolphin swimmers are given the opportunity to choose which races they want to swim for this last meet. The Dolphins showed their team spirit by wearing tie-die shirts that they all worked hard on making the weekend before, while the Sharks wore their team colors. The Sharks prevailed over the Dolphins with a final score of 579-454. At the conclusion of the meet after the teams were done swimming the Dolphins had a special treat when a group of the alumni 15-18 boys competed to prove they still have the Dolphin spirit.
All the swimmers tried hard to beat their own personal times for this final meet and demonstrated great sportsmanship toward their rivals. This week's swimmers of the meet for the Treeview Dolphins for 10 and under were Ya Serwaa Owusu and Andrew Chen and in the 11 and up age group was Sara Hancock.
Chabot College will host the EBSL Championships on Saturday, July 30, and it promises to be an exciting day of races with rewards ceremonies for the entire EBSL. This yearly-anticipated event brings together all of the swim teams from the EBSL to compete for their place in the hierarchy.
Coaches have trained their swimmers all year round for this one special event. This is the final chance for swimmers to beat their own personal times and show their team spirit. At the end of championships a final awards ceremony is held recognizing each teams accomplishments and hard work and many teams host their own post parties and with ribbon ceremonies to recognize another job well done for the year.
As the season comes to an end, a special thanks goes out to all of the swimmers, coaches, volunteers and parents for their hard work, and look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
