CMS swim and diving season lasts for around 5 weeks with about 6 meets in a season. The swimming coaches are Buffy Hourt-Allred, Sarah Call and the diving coach is Brad Payne. Practice runs 5 days a week from 4:15-5:30 pm Monday thru Thursday, and 2:30-4:00 pm on Fridays. 

Coach Sarah Call has been a swimming coach on and off since 1994, and her favorite part of the season is the conference meet (this year in Worland) because she says “most of the time swimmers achieve their best times of the season, and it’s exciting.” Coach Call’s favorite part of being a coach is that swimmers are excited about the sport and have a wide range of emotions, she also likes this age group. 

Swimmer and diver Sammie Geoghegan believes that swimming is unrecognized because the swimmers do not get their own bus to get to practice, do not get the funding for team suits, and have a very short season. Her favorite part of the swim season would be diving.
