Finished Jr. Nationals in Atlanta in December.
On Thursday, I dropped time in 50 free. I went a 20.85. Then in the lead off for the 200 free relay, I dropped to a 20.63.
My lead off on the 400 free relay was a 46.15.
I recently had Gwinnett County Championships and won the 50 free and came in second in the 100 free.
Placed second with a 20.47 in the 50 free at 7A High School Championship
I will be traveling to Sr. Sectionals in Florida in March.
Just to recap:
I am determined to swim in college. I have a lot to offer a team. I am late to the game for two reasons. One I stopped swimming for a while and two I switched clubs in January of 2019.
If you read my bio below, it explains everything. Working with Karl has been what was best for me and it has shown. I just turned 17 in June and I am working very hard. I am even considering a gap year because I know I have not had the opportunity to shine due to the lack of times and meets to show case my ability.
I hope that you will keep me in mind. I know that it is late in the recruiting process but would like to have a conversation with you about your program.
Thanks for your time.
My name is Wesley Carter and I am emailing you to get my name out there for your program. I am a Senior at Parkview High School in Lilburn GA.
I began swimming for my neighborhood summer league and will finish my final season with them this summer. I enjoyed the family oriented environment. I joined Swim Atlanta and trained with them for a couple of years. Unfortunately, I was constantly being compared to my brother and it took its toll on me. I was not sure, if I was swimming for me or because that was what was expected. I took three years off from the sport. As I entered high school, I knew I wanted to be a part of the Parkview swim team because it had everything that I wanted. I wanted a close-knit family that would push me to be the best I could. I enjoy leading my teammates and cheering them on at meets. I will never forget when they cheered me on when I made my first state cut. I want to be that for other teammates. As a freshman I won the Rookie of the Year award from my teammates. After swimming for the high school team, I decided to go back to year round. I joined Gwinnett Aquatics for the long course season. I needed to find a team that was smaller and not like a puppy mill of tons of kids training. I want to be noticed and learn from mistakes. I am now with the Spartans under the direction of Karl Krug. I needed new coaching as I am a sprinter and was not being trained properly. Three summers ago I broke the 14-year-old 50 free record with only being back in the pool seriously training for 5 months. I am already seeing what a new coach and team has done for me. I am very happy with Karl and he thinks he can move me to another level. I want to swim in college so that it will help me get into a good school and show my leadership ability. I want to be a scholar athlete. I am a late bloomer as I just turned 17 in June. Although it is great for summer league it has not been so good for college recruiting. I have already grown taller and my times are dropping. I am a very hard worker and I am determined to swim in college. If given the chance I know that you would be impressed with what you could do with me in the water. Please let me know if there are any opportunities to come and visit and maybe have a chance to speak with you about your program.
