Something that has always stood out about this team of swimmers and divers is the way they continue to show teamwork in what may seem to be an individual sport.  This became clear when the team picked up the motto, “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.”

“That was all their idea,” Kellogg said. “A lot of people think swimming [and diving] is an individual sport, and it kind of is, but honestly, if you have a team of supportive, encouraging, positive people around you, it’s only going to help your performance, so that is kind of the mantra we have.”

The Eagles swim team will be at home one more time for the season next week on Jan. 24 and 25 to compete against one of their biggest rivals, Gardner-Webb University and the University of North Florida.

“We are honoring our seniors on Saturday so they’ll be fired up, I hope, and will do some damage,” Kellogg said.

The diving team will be competing at home for the last time as well on Jan. 25 against UNF.

“Gardner-Webb doesn’t have any divers, but North Florida has four or five good divers, so that’s going to be a nice barometer for the conference meet to see how we stack up against them,” Kellogg said

The meet on Friday will start at 6 p.m. and on Saturday at noon. Both will be held at the Aquatics Center in the RAC.
