Middle School

The Loyola Middle School Swim team is coached by Mr.Raymond Brown and assisted by Mr. Keith Schertle. Mr. Raymond Brown was a very accomplished swimmer for Loyola Blakefield in the 80's and went on to compete and star for the University of Virginia. The goal of middle school swimming is to be competitive and to help prepare the young DONS for high school and year round swimming. Middle School Swim Practice is held daily after school for approximately one hour.
