The numbers game; The Lady Knight swim team is bigger and better than ever

Even at diving, Southington should be able to stay competitive. Tia Jones returns for her third varsity season, and she’ll lead a group of newcomers at the away meets.

“We have big expectations for Tia,” said Tuttle. “We expect her to get into that state tournament, and we’ll see how far she can go.”

There will be plenty of chances to see how the Lady Knights measure up because Southington continues to compete in one of the toughest conferences in the state. The girls will open the season against non-conference rivals Plainville, Hartford co-op, and Bristol Eastern before diving into the CCC West schedule against teams like Hall, Conard, and Farmington.

How will they measure up? Tuttle can’t wait to find out.

“Our biggest question mark is if we can rise up to our high expectations, but I have no doubt that we will,” said the coach. “It’s a new culture here in town. A successful season will put at least one relay and a couple of individuals into the state opens. It’s our expectation to be there.”
