Did you know that Bonneville High School has a swim team? The BHS swim team has been around for many, many years. It started off as a club sport and was finally moved to being a sanctioned sport in the 2017-2018 school year. The head coach, Glenn Roth, has been an important asset to the team for numerous years. This being his sixth year of coaching, he has brought and will continue to bring much to the team. He loves watching the swimmers improve as they come in with little to no experience and seeing them be able to do things they could not do before. It also makes Roth happy seeing the impact that swimming has on people's lives after graduation. Even when swimmers come in to try their best and not see much improvement, Roth does not stop pushing on and supporting his team. Having swam since fifth grade and all the way through high school, Roth brings experience to the team. The head coach also has a passion for the sport as it has always been a part of his personal and family life. Roth is not the only one teaching valuable skills; the swim team taught him “how to appreciate the kids and the good relationships that I have and seeing them succeed.” However, the team is learning how to utilize the limited pool space and still work together and get along. Roth encourages anyone who is interested in swimming to find out more and join the team next year! The captain of this year's team is Kendra Vickers, a senior here at Bonneville. Vickers has been swimming since she was a baby and joined the team her sophomore year. Since the sport does not require hand-eye skills such as throwing and catching, Vickers encourages anyone who considers themselves "unathletic" to join the team. Even though Vickers expressed her struggle with the early practices, she still enjoys doing dives and turns. The team has even encouraged her to continue swimming for pleasure after high school. Vickers and Roth both encourage everyone looking to make new friends or have a good time after school to find out more about the Bonneville High School swim team.
