When the Ocean City girls swimming team experienced a two-point loss to Egg Harbor Township on Dec. 20, the Red Raiders took it as a hard loss. It was their first of the season, and the girls have a long history of winning. After all, expectations are always high for these swimmers.
However, new head coach Ian Keyser was there to lend the girls some perspective.
“It wasn’t the outcome we wanted, but we are going to stay focused on bigger goals,” Keyser said. “We are going to take that as a learning experience. To be in that environment — where its packed, where the lead goes back and forth — lets use that to benefit us come the real playoffs.”
