Swimming & Diving wins GNAC Championships!


The swimming and diving team won the GNAC CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!!!! Once again we did has been a tradition for 8 years now. The more I look at how we do in our sports conferences the better I get what it takes to win.

People often think that because Simmons College is a division III school in sports, the level of competitiveness is not that important. Besides the fact that they are wrong, most students have no clue what it takes to be a student athlete. As athletes, we see sport as more than just an activity to stay in shape. It is a passion.

Each day that we practice at 6 am in the morning, and feel our legs burning, and our heart beating faster and faster and we fight our brain telling us to stop and rest, we overcome a stage and become better athletes. We have a bigger purpose than just swimming to swim, we strive to be the best we can be, and that has nothing to do with any division level. For that fact, I just want to congratulate the whole swimming team!!!
