Teamwork... the cooperative efforts of a group of people in the interest of a common cause. As the Carrollton Bluefins, we work together as a team every day to get better at the sport we love most, swimming- our common cause. Through counting for each other on distance races, teaching the rookies how to read a heat sheet, and even the healthy competitions that have formed between the seniors, we work together to make both ourselves and our teammates improve in the water. The teamwork continues to our schools as well. Bremen, Central, Carrollton, Newnan- teamwork allows us to work towards the common cause of representing our schools in the classroom and in the pool.
For the second year in a row, the Carrollton Bluefins, with the help of our community, are coming together for a new common cause. Labeled Team Parker, we hope to make waves in honor of Parker Solberg, a middle schooler on our team who is cared for at Children's Healthcare for a brain tumor on his left optic nerve.
