Spartans are still finding a way to swim, amidst the battle to bring back the Swim and Dive team.

It has been a year since Spartans were able to compete at the varsity level on Michigan State University’s Swim and Dive team. In October 2020, President Samuel Stanley announced in an email to Spartans, that the swim and dive team would be discontinued after the 2020-2021 season. Since then, former members of the team and supporters have been pleading to President Stanley and the Board of Trustees to reinstate the team. Women took their efforts to the courts and are currently waiting to be reheard in court due to incorrect calculations in their first case. One of the plaintiffs in the case is Sophia Balow, she is also a lifeguard at MSU and a swim club member.
