Teaching perseverance, perspective and paying it forward through swimming


Before Caroline County opened their very own YMCA about three years ago, swimming was a recreation reserved for neighborhood and backyard pools in the summer.

Now, with an indoor facility, it’s become a year-round sport for a growing number of Caroline High School teens who have formed the school’s first-ever swim team.

“I think swimming is really more about self-esteem than it is about athletic ability or anything else like that,” explained Christy Guise-Wright.
