I have been swimming for 11 years and year round for 8 years. I started on a local country club swim team and loved it which made me decide to go year-round. I currently swim for Central Iowa Aquatics and have been on the team for 4 years. I also swim for my high school team at Valley High School as a backstroker and mid-distance freestyler. I love swimming for my high school team and trying to do my best to help with our team’s success. My short term goals are getting a Jr. Nationals cut and winning a state championship with my team. I want to swim at a high level in college and to try to become the best swimmer that I can be with the opportunity. My favorite aspects of our team is our sense of tradition, fraternity, and our shared successes. My main focus is the 200 Back but I also swim a good amount of sprint backstroke and 200-500 freestyle. I’ve grown to love the challenge that club training represents and it has made me a better, stronger swimmer both physically and mentally.
