Swimming: John F. Kennedy Titans stand tall

A small team of J.F. Kennedy swimmers faced a Herculean task Friday, March 22 when they faced the Logan Colts as visitors. This year, the Titan squad has gathered a dedicated group that have shown a lot of grit and determination and may be nurturing a few Mission Valley Athletic League stars in their midst. A good showing at the meet belied the meager aquatic training facilities on the J.F. Kennedy campus. Parents have rallied behind the school's efforts and Coach Wun to improve the facilities to include a deep swimming pool, with the capability of holding diving practice.

This season, Titan swimmers have received donations from the community to purchase new equipment including fins, pull buoys and a clock. Coach Wun has committed her time mornings and afternoons. With continued support, Titan students, parents and alumni are dreaming of a state-of-the-art pool to support a water polo team and larger swim team. Any help will be appreciated; contact Mr. McDermott, Athletic Director at (510) 657-4070.
