A sport here at MMHS that many students are a part of is the swim team. It has been hard for them with COVID affecting their practices and meets. Maelee Crowshaw said, "It’s been a struggle trying to figure out practices, schedules, and having to come on different days." Eleah Eastwood said, "It's kind of hard to balance schedules, and only so many people can be in the pool at once so it makes it harder." It hasn't been an easy start to the season for the swim team this year, but they are still working hard to make it a good one!
Tuckler Back has been selected as one of this week's "Prep of the Week" in boys swimming. Tucker has been a member of the swim team for the past two years. He was a team captain this past season.

As the alarm goes off at 4:30 in the morning, students on the swim team groan and stumble out of bed with baggy eyes and dragging feet. Half asleep, they drive to the Springville Pool to begin practice.
