Another young team is taking to the water as Oldham County tries to motivate its team.
When freshman Darby Williams joined the Lady Colonels two years ago as a seventh-grader, Williams felt like, well, a fish out of water. She didn’t have much support and too many times felt nervous.
Now, she’s part of the overwhelming support the experienced swimmers are giving to their younger teammates, especially in practices at the Oldham County YMCA. That’s helped with 5:30 a.m. practices three days a week.
