The 2020-2021 High School Swimming season is starting and as part of our season preview we talked to Charlotte swimming coach Emily Lapinski Charlotte on what to expect.
"First things first I'm hoping we stay healthy. I want to make sure that they have a full season and I'm hoping that we keep healthy and that we're able to participate in leagues as a full team." Lapinski commented. "We did not have a girls season in the fall but they will be participating with the guys season this winter. That's not uncommon to have that. There are other teams in the area that have that as well; they have co-ed teams in the winter. If a girl does another fall sport they then have the opportunity to swim with the guys team in the winter."
Charlotte will be participating in live meets, and is expected to have a limited live audience.
"We will have live meets, we have really good protocol in place as a league. We will have live meets, there are some situations where we might have to limit spectators and that kind of stuff but we will still be able to have a full experience with the protocols that we have as long as everyone minds their p's and q's."
Look for Charlotte to excel in the breast stroke events, the distance freestyle and the individual medleys.
"I'm coming into a team that is really experienced already. I have a large amount of kids that have been swimming for a long time or that have at least been swimming since their freshman year. Then I have a nice handful of new swimmers as well that are coming from other sports, that wouldn't have tried swimming if they didn't have the opportunity of having a co-educational team. My hope is actually to chip away at a couple of records both on the girls and the guys side. The girls will have the opportunity to break their records as well."
