A few years later she joined the Trident Aquatic Club where she completed her high school years. Practicing morning and evening six days a week she ate and breathed swimming. Here she honed her swimming skills and learned discipline. At that time, Solanco did not have a swim team. Rachel made a special request to the school board and created the Solanco High School Swim Team of one, in order to swim competitively at Districts. Every summer she swam for the Conestoga Swim Team.
