Bison Swim & Dive Training Trip – Part 1
- Sam Rutan

This past Friday, the Bucknell swimming and diving teams embarked on our annual training trip to Boca Raton, Florida. After a grueling week of final exams, the change in scenery provided us an opportunity to train together for one more week in 2016. 

We had some weather-related delays up north, but the team was all smiles once we arrived in sunny Florida. Since then, we’ve had a strict schedule consisting of water workouts, lifts, and other dryland work. The change in weather certainly gave us that extra kick of motivation during the long workouts. 

In between all of the work, we haven’t forgotten to have some fun. The entire team visited the beach on Tuesday in hope to relax, unwind, and get some color. We’ve also enjoyed each other’s company at team meals, sharing some laughs and other insight. We’re eager to make the most out of our training during these last three days in Boca before the holidays.
