2020 hasn’t been the friendliest year to many sports programs through the nation and swimming was no exception. Still lurking in the midst was the uncertainty of having a season and how much of a season would it be. Through turmoil, schedule changes, flexibility, Dreher swim Coaches Coach Kelly and Coach Lauren have showed unbelievable focus throughout the season. In addition to what some would call the “weirdest sports season ever,” at least in our lifetime, senior night was even shared with AC Flora who graciously allowed the Dreher swim team to share their stage with the seniors. Big gift baskets with monogrammed towels, that some of the moms worked on, were given to the seniors and they’ll also receive hand quilted blankets after the season to show Dreher swimmers how much love and care the coaches shared for each student athlete to make the season even more memorable and special.
When asked about the memorable season Coach Kelly said, “Dreher swimming had an incredible regular season. Through all of the ups and downs that the pandemic has brought with it, the blue devils rallied around each other and stopped at nothing to have the best season for their teammates. We have 16 well-deserved swimmers, 8 of those being seniors, that will be attending state meet this weekend at North Charleston’s brand new state of the art facility. Coach Lauren and I are looking forward to watching the blue devils compete at the championship level – they have done the preparation, now is the fun part, swimming fast for their school!”
