CHS experience: Swim Team I started swimming about 6 years ago, when I joined the Cranford Gators team and swam during the summer, and the Jersey Gators to swim during the winter. I joined the CHS swim team last year as a freshman, and joined again this year. It’s a good sport, as it is both fun and a great workout. Our season is during the winter. I swim the 500 free, which is 20 laps, as well as other events such as the 200 free, the 100 breast, and the 400 free relay. It’s a great team, and we all strive to become the best swimmers that we can be, beating our personal records as well as the other team. Our record this year was 6-6, and we plan to win even more meets next year.
