Trinity Swim Team is Bigger Than Just Swimming

Trinity Swim Team is Bigger Than Just Swimming

As the Trinity High School swim team prepares for state on February 23, juniors Sawyer Tapp and Alec Kammeyer have much to say about what it means to be a part of the team. Kammeyer and Tapp understand the brotherhood and community that comes with through the rigors of swimming. One thing that stands out to them is how fun it can be, especially at practice.  “It’s a good mix of still being able to have fun since it’s only an hour, and being able to put in hard work at the same time. Swimming is a good sport; it keeps you in shape when you’re doing it,” said Kammeyer.

While Tapp doesn’t go to Trinity practices, he does love to swim at meets for Trinity and would like to pursue his career in college. “I kind of followed my brother and came to Trinity and family… I want to be competitive in high school swimming as well,” said Tapp. Tapp’s brother, Hunter Tapp, swims for NC State, and was also an Olympic swimmer. It is clear that he is an inspiration for his younger brother.

The community that Kammeyer and Tapp feel through Trinity and swimming is one of the greatest things they have recognized. It’s clear that each sports teams at Trinity has a special bond with each other. As a member of the Trinity community, it’s great to see every sport acknowledged.

The Trinity Swimming Rocks, headed by Coach Mike Essig ’85, take on state this weekend in Lexington, Kentucky. Good luck to the entire team as they compete and continue to build brotherhood along the way.
