Just keep swimming

Sculling, a technique to stay above water, Ashley Boettge (12) practices her swimming skills in Mrs. Sharon Wasson’s 6th hour Basic Aquatic Skills class, Nov 27.

“I think the class is fun. I enjoy swimming and I’m a lifeguard as well. Also since I’m a workout freak I can swim for two hours as a work out. The class is challenging. It makes you push yourself,” Boettge said.  “It’s also helping me with a job offer that I’m taking to become a beach lifeguard in Florida; the requirements are swimming a 500 in 10 minutes and Wasson helps me achieve that.

“It’s a basic skill aquatic class where they learn basic strokes, to dive and play games,” Coach Wasson said.
