At the start of a race, swimmers take their positions and anxiously await to take the dive.
Senior Brianna Lucien, wearing Vandal black and gold, looks to break five minutes in a 500-meter race. She has been looking to conquer this goal since taking up the sport.
When she reached the finish, looked at her finishing time and exited the pool, she had tears in her eyes. Her teammates had tears in their eyes as well. Lucien had broken five minutes.
This memory from Lucien might best encapsulate what kind of bond the eight Idaho Swimming and Diving seniors had built over the last four years.
