Head Coach Brett Koerten commented, “The team is looking really good. I’m excited for the rest of the season. The team has really been performing well and we’re looking forward to PAL [finals].”

Senior Vincent Busque reflected, “[Woodside’s] varsity boys were supposed have a close meet because one of their swimmers is committed to UC Berkeley, but I think we pulled this one off.”

Sarah Orttung is a senior in her third year on the staff. She likes to write features and opinions to bring attention to issues that may otherwise be overlooked. She hopes that the Chronicle can be a force for social change, and is excited to help others on their staff use their voices in an influential way.
