After a midnight try out session and lots of time trials, the Mauldin High Swim Team had their first practice Wednesday, August 3rd, at 6am at Brookside Pool.  Coach Gettys and Coach Hynum scaled the team down to 42 from the 60 who came to the first try-out.  This is the first year that the team has more boys (22) than girls (20).  Gettys said,  "It's the most kids that have tried out for the team in several years.   It was tough making cuts-all of the kids were great!".  The team is very young this year.  A third of the team is starting their first year as a Mauldin Maverick, and there are only 7 seniors and 5 juniors leading the team.  The team and coaches are looking forward to a fun and exciting season, expecting lots of hard work and dedication from each individual to build the team.
