QRU? Senior swim team member Mark Lawson


Senior Mark Lawson shares his expectations for the upcoming swim team season.

How many years have you been on the South Lakes swim team?

I have been on the team for 3 years and counting.

What are some of your goals for this season?

My main goal is to get to know everybody and to go sub 1:10 in the 100 meter breaststroke.

What events do you think you will you be swimming in the meets this season?

I hope to be swimming in the aforementioned 100 meter breaststroke, as well as the relays of course.

How do you feel about the new freshman joining the team?

I’m excited to get to know them even better and to share in the traditions of our team, like our cheers and the infamous white brownies.

How do you feel about this being your last year? Are you going to miss the team?

I’m absolutely sad that this is my last year. It’s like saying goodbye to a family. Senior night and my final pasta party are going to be an extremely emotional time.
