Episode Summary

EDIT
It's Not About Winning
AIRED:
The Bayside girls swim team is undefeated thanks to nationally ranked team captain Liz and new recruit Katie, but the boys team featuring Nicky and team captain Ryan is sinking fast. Eric has his eye on Shauna Elliot, a member of the girls team. After losing a meet against Westwood, The boys think they have no chance of beating Valley. So Eric decides to switch places with Maria so both can cover the swim teams for the school radio station. With the state finals coming up, Liz asks Screech for extra time in the pool. Screech tells the boys that their practice time will be cut to give the girls have a better chance of beating Valley. Katie has an idea on how to solve this conflict and Screech presents it to the girls team. At the other end, Maria is covering the boys team while Eric covers the girls. Ryan and Nicky play a phone prank on the girls, pretending that NBC Sports is doing a story on the girls. The prank ends up with Liz and the rest of the girls getting detention while the boys team practices in the pool. Katie and Liz are both mad at Ryan for his sneaky way of manipulating the teams, so both team captains meet in a one-on-one race to see who gets the practice time. Eric tries to get Shauna to take swimming lessons and which she turns down. Mr. Belding finds out the truth about the race and Ryan quits the Team. Along with Screech, Mr. Belding settles the dispute between the boys and girls teams and both make amends. The girls give the boys a pep rally and Ryan and Liz apologize to each other. At the big swim meet, Liz introduces Ryan to four-Time Olympic Gold medalist Janet Evans, who gives him some advice. Ryan wins his race for Bayside.moreless
