Others may choose to participate in other sports, or simply go straight home while they look forward to the 2018/2019 season.
Swimmers look forward to their team banquet coming up in the following weeks. The team will say goodbye to beloved Canadian coach Kari Collier, as she moves on to new ventures in life. Assistant coach Jack is anticipated on leading the Bombers to victory next year, with a new assistant coach by his side.
