Boardman Swim and Dive teams explain the spirit of BTUB

January 18, 2018
The Town Crier

BTUB; is it a secret code for Boardman Swim and Dive Teams? It's actually no secret at all. It's a unique tradition that inspires these Boardman Student athletes to give back.

The Boardman High School Swim and Dive team recently completed their annual BTUB community service activities. Each swimmer is broken up into one of three BTUB (Boardman Team Unity Building) teams. Each BTUB team is led by the senior swimmers and divers, who then organize and create the activities that will benefit their chosen charity or non-profit.

This year, Boardman BTUB Team 1 designed and created 16 blankets for children at Akron Children's Hospital. The blankets were then delivered to the hospital by senior BTUB leaders, Mia Bruno and Sarah Murray.
