A trio of foreign-exchange students has taken to the pool at Clinton Central and Frankfort High School this season continuing to enjoy the camaraderie of team sports in their American experiences after sampling other sports in the fall.

“We have competition and friends on the team, it’s like a family,” said German exchange-student Eduard “Eddie” Fischer, who is competing for the Clinton Central swim team after playing football earlier. “Here in the swimming family, you can’t have any better than that. It’s the best of the best and it makes it fun. You learn a lot about what it means to be on a team. You learn to improve yourself and gain a lot of experience. That’s very important.”
