Swimming and Diving Banquet
March 10, 2016
After a long winter of hard work and long lasting memories, the swimming and diving team will be celebrating their season tonight with the annual banquet. For many, the banquet will be a final goodbye to the sport and team. The seniors will each be giving their final speeches, along with a few words about the season and fellow team members.
One thing that makes the swimming and diving banquet differ from other banquets is the use of fun awards for all team members. In the weeks prior to the banquet, the team captains get together and decide what makes each team member just a little weirder than the rest. Then they form an original award based off of that person’s unique quality. It provides for a more light hearted feel to follow the senior speeches (which often times cause a few tears by the teammates, seniors, coaches, and parents). Following the dinner and awards, the team gathers around a projector to watch a slideshow of pictures from the season and to reminisce on all of the hard work and fun times they spent together throughout the season. All in all, the banquet is a way to celebrate with a nice meal to top off a long season of swimming and diving.
