This past Saturday, the Florida International University swim and dive team competed in the last home meet of the season against Florida Gulf Coast University. They celebrated 10 seniors at the Biscayne Bay Campus pool.
Some parents flew in to surprise their children on the heartwarming day. The seniors were given personalized poster boards made by their teammates and were crowned as they ran through a tunnel representing the school’s flag.
“It’s almost like the last page in the book… Knowing that this is the last time I get to race with these girls on the team,” said Christie Chue, a multi-record-holding senior swimmer.
