Cuculi also touched on the tradition that the boys swim team has been keeping up for years which is to dye their hair. Swimmers headed to sectionas have dyed/bleached hair blonde for “luck,” he said. Those continuing onto state will buzzcut the blonde hair off for more good fortune.

“I think it’s a super fun tradition that we have been doing for years, I didn’t want to dye my whole hair so I just dyed the tips,” said Cuculi.
