When times get hard, just keep swimming.

Matthew Donaldson, coach of the Lufkin High School swim team, said he hopes to see his young 2018-19 team be as competitive as it can this season.

Donaldson said the team has several new members who were in middle school last year. He said the move from Class 6A to Class 5A will benefit his young squad.

The LHS swim team practices at the Boys and Girls Club of Lufkin.

Members of the 2018-19 team include:

Seniors — Darien Guzinsky, Gavin Park, Ivan Escobedo, Matthew Thornton and Whit Wesoloski  

Juniors — Evan Dorman, Natalie Naramore, Will Lanigan, Aldo Merino-Soto and Garin Ashby

Sophomores — Leslye De La Garza, Lizy Ramirez, Gabriel Love, Gethsemany Sanchez, Crystal Lopez and Katelyn Kennidy

Freshmen — Joshua Gonzalez, Gisselle Lara, Andrew Lanigan and Gabe Kerr

Donaldson said no members of the team consider themselves better than anyone else on the team. What matters, he said, is that they compete as a team.

The swim team has begun its fall season. The next meet for the Panthers and Lady Panthers swimmers is this coming Saturday in Nacogdoches. Lufkin High School will host its own invitational meet on Nov. 3 at the Boys & Girls Club of Lufkin pool.
