Anna Petterson is a Junior and current member of Chamberlain High Schools 2016-2017 Girl’s Swim Team.

Petterson has been on Chamberlain’s swim team since her freshman year in 2014. She had two older sisters who where on the swim team before her, she was motivated by them to join.

She believes swim is a difficult sport because it definitely takes a lot of energy but once you get into it, it’s a great experience.

“So far this season I think we’ve done pretty good!” Petterson shares.

The previous year, the team struggled with their self-esteem being as small as they where and members leaving. The past 2015-2016 Captain and Anna’s sister Katherine Petterson said

the biggest challenge for the team was trying to keep them to stay positive, how to be a team and support each other.”

The team this year didn’t gain as many members as they wanted but are happy with the size they turned out with and stayed positive, in result the season so far has been fun and successful. Petterson says her favorite part of swim is being able to hang out and bond with her teammates.

Petterson shares about Girls swim Coach– “Coach Bower pushes us and motivates us to be our absolute best, even when we don’t see the potential in ourselves”

Her advice to future members is not to get discouraged the first day.

“Keep trying, we’ve had people come in the first day and quit. If you stay the rewards are great! I love being part of a team. They become like a family to you.”
