In Focus: Diving right in

Last Friday, I spent the day on the crowded deck of the Evanston High School swimming pool for the IHSA boys swimming and diving state meet.

The atmosphere was electric, and the sounds of the fans and swimmers echoed off of the tiled walls. 

As a former high school swimmer, who never made it to the big stage, I got sentimental as I watched the swimmers’ camaraderie and excitement as the coaches whistled and waved as their swimmers raced by.

My high school swim memories will always be in my heart, as I’m sure they will be for these young men. Congratulations, swimmers.
