The Cleveland Heights High School Swim Cadets, a synchronized swim team, will hold its 2014 season performances on March 6, 7 and 8. This year’s theme is “Swim Cadets Fall into a Dream.”

The 20-girl team is the school’s oldest extracurricular organization, and has been active for more than 80 years. 

Laina Cohen, a Heights High graduate and one of the team’s coaches, said, “The athletics department has graciously taken us under [its] wing for the first time this year. I am so proud to say that, with the amazing amount of help they have given us, as well as all of the work and dedication these girls bring to the team, this year’s show is bound to be a must-see event!"

Kristin Hughes, Heights High’s director of athletics, commented, “I was really happy to support the Swim Cadets this season. They are a great group of students who work very hard. Coach Cohen has done a tremendous job in her first season with us. Upholding this tradition is truly something special for Tiger Nation.”

The shows begin at 7:30 p.m. each night at the Heights High pool, at 13263 Cedar Road in Cleveland Heights. Parking is available at the rear of the building, and the pool entrance is at the northeast corner. Tickets are available from cadet members and will also be sold at the door; buy them early—these shows always sell out.

This year’s Swim Cadet officers are co-presidents Phoebe Lammert and Sarah Lentz, treasurer Emma Bleick, secretary Franny Krupkin and sergeant-at-arms Meredith Matia. Laina Cohen and Madison Walker, the team’s coaches, are both former Heights High Swim Cadets.

2014 Heights Swim Cadets members are: seniors Emma Bartz, Emma Bleick, Amber Jackson, Franny Krupkin, Phoebe Lammert, Kasey Lanese and Meredith Matia; juniors Julianna Clark, Miranda Coble, Arden Dyer, Emily Lang, Sarah Lentz and Amelia Williams; sophomores Maya Hubbard, Grace Peppler, Allegra Steiger; and freshmen Soli Collins, Aubrey Fort, Jessa Lammert and Laurel Matia.
