The Sunnyvale swim team may be a relatively new addition, but that has not stopped it from having an enormous amount of success. In the last two years, junior Emily Manly, the only member of the team until this year, has won district titles both years in dominating fashion. Shim and Manly will compete in the district meet in Rockwall on January 26, in hopes of advancing to the Regional meet in Frisco on February 5 and the state meet in Austin on February 19.

At the state meet, Manly has made a name for herself and Sunnyvale, finishing 5th in the 200 IM her freshman year and 4th her sophomore year, along with a 10th place finish in the 500 Freestyle in 2014 and a 6th place finish in the 100 Backstroke in 2015. She advanced to regionals and ultimately state every year.

“My ultimate goal this season is to go to State again, and hopefully achieve some personal best times,” Manly said.

This year, the swim team picked up a new member, freshman Stephanie Shim. Combined with Manly, it could mean big things for the future of the swim team. Becky Fisher, who took on the role of Sunnyvale’s first swim coach in history, expects both girls to advance beyond the district round and compete well in the regional competition. Manly shares similar feelings.

“I’m confident that Sunnyvale will dominate this year, overall,” Manly said.
