About the Swim Team

Somerset Stingrays

The SRC Swim Team is a spirited, family based swim team committed to providing a well-rounded swim experience balancing community, sportsmanship, and overall enjoyment with high quality instruction, individual skill development, and a competitive team oriented environment.

The coaches constantly work to help swimmers enhance all four competitive strokes, improve racing techniques, build self confidence, become good team members, and learn that winning and succeeding are not always the same thing. The Somerset Swim Team hopes to provide motivation, instruction, fun times, and support for all team members.

The Somerset Stingrays are a member of the Midlakes Swim League that understands that athletics plays a role in the development of young people as they learn teamwork, cooperation, and respect for others. The league is divided into five Divisions, each with five or six teams. Somerset is a Division II club.

I’m a Junior at Newport High School and one of the swim and dive captains for next year! I’ve been swimming for Somerset since I was a Sharkie, and I started club swimming on King in 3rd grade, but transferred to Chinook in middle school. After freshman year, however, I decided to focus on school and extracurriculars  abd became involved in DECA, Junior State of America, and Technology Student Association. When I’m not in one of my clubs, you can find me playing water polo on the Newport girls team!!
